Color slide of Rose Festival Parade float 27 pulled by two horses down W Burnside in front of a crowd outside the Shoreline Hotel. The sign for the Blue Eagle Cafe is visible in the background. The float is of a large wagon with orange, yellow, blue and white flowers. Five men in top hats ride above, one wearing a blue ribbon and holding the horses reins. The side of the float has "The Greatest Show on Earth" written in flowers. The Rose Festival Parade is an annual event in which floats are made out of flowers and paraded down the streets of Portland.
