The Hillsboro Rotary Fourth of July Parade is without a doubt one of the largest in the West! Since 1926, the event has been an annual tradition in Hillsboro, Oregon. This year, the Parade will assist the Rotary in commemorating the organization’s 100th year of community service. On the official website of Hillsboro Rotary, you can learn more about this fantastic organization.
Tens of thousands of people will observe as hundreds of floats and entries parade through the streets of the historic downtown. Children and elders alike will be prepared for the candy to be thrown from the vehicles. Prepare to arrive early or take the MAX Train, walk, or ride a bicycle in order to reach the Parade Route.
Here’s an image of the Parade Route, which begins punctually at 10:00 a.m. –
Do you know that on Sunday (2 July), authorities captured a suspect in a “racially motivated” attack on a Black food truck owner in southeast Portland?

The previous year was a tremendous success, and this year should follow suit. The Parade lasts approximately one hour, and it will be sweltering, so bring plenty of fluids.
Some downtown businesses will be open, and the City Hall fountains will be operating, so it will be an enjoyable time to chill off. We hope to see everyone there, and we wish everyone a safe and enjoyable Fourth of July!
