Color slide of Rose Festival Parade float 34 driving down W Burnside in front of a crowd outside the Shoreline Hotel. The float has a small carousel made of flowers with two women riding on carousel horses. Two additional women ride sitting on the front of the float. A man in a blue uniform and black hat sits on the left side of the float driving it, another man in a black uniform stands at the back of the float behind an organ. The side of the float reads "Hawthorne Boosters" in purple flowers, a yellow sign on the front reads 34. A man in a brown suit and straw hat with "Hawthorne Boosters" written around the brim walks next to float. The Rose Festival Parade is an annual event in which floats are made out of flowers and paraded down the streets of Portland.
