Every year the celebration parade brings our community together in a fun and festive way, said Mayor Denny Doyle. Im excited for this years parade theme and cannot wait to see what our residents will showcase at the celebration.

Ive lived in many places across America but chose Beaverton because its a progressive city with friendly people, Kroger said in a news release. When I looked at all that Beaverton is and does, the theme choice became a no-brainer. I love living hereits my kinda town!
