Color slide of Rose Festival Parade float 30 driving down Burnside in front of a crowd outside the Shoreline Hotel and Cafe. The float has small opening in the front with the word "Enter" written in flowers and a small yellow sign next to it with the number 30 on it. A woman dressed in yellow leans out holding a pink ribbon, another woman dressed in a blue and yellow clown suit sits above her. The top of the float reads "Big Top." The Rose Festival Parade is an annual event in which floats are made out of flowers and paraded down the streets of Portland.
