Portland, June 9th, 2013. Hannah Rose Rice became the third Madison High School student and first in 39-years to be selected as Queen of the Portland Rose Festival. The Portland Rose Festival’s Spirit Mountain Casino Grand Floral Parade stepped off for the 100th time under beautiful skies as it wound its way though capacity crowds along the 4.2 mile parade route. Everyone was a winner today in the Bank of the West Grand Floral Walk leading the parade at 9:30 a.m. as families made themselves over with fun costumes and decorations. Here are the most revived and updated awards.
