Note from the former webmaster, Starr Lara:
It is with much fondness and sadness that I say "Goodbye" to doing the website for the St. Johns Parade. I have enjoyed every minute of it since it began approximately six or seven years ago when I took it from paper to the internet.

Ann Wolf will be the new webmaster. I pass the torch to her. Due to personal obligations, I can no longer do it justice.
Thank you very much each and every single one of you, participants, enthusiasts, and everyone who loves the St. Johns Parade. I will no doubt always attend the parade.

Starr Dawn Lara

The St. Johns Parade has been a tradition in the North Portland area since 1962. People from near and far look forward to this event every year. Many families have their favorite viewing spot and many who have moved away come home for this special week-end to watch the floats, bands, drill teams, and horses. Parade participants from the early years are now watching their children and grandchildren as they march or ride the parade route.

The parade is a free event! Anyone can enter – young and old!

Follow the directions to the parade, and be sure to read the Safety Information and Waiver of Liability.
Parade Entry forms need to be received by May 2nd. See the Entry Form page link at the bottom of each web page. On the entry
