Yesterday the Oregon Ducks football team was named as the Grand Marshal of the 2011 Grand Floral Parade for this year’s Portland Rose Festival. Dandelions created 2 large bouquets of roses (1 yellow, 1 red) to present to UO President Richard Lariviere and the Oregon Duck mascot as the announcement was made by Rose Festival Board members.
“Both our organizations have been working for a hundred years to bring positive recognition to Oregon,” 2011 Portland Rose Festival Foundation President Sue Bunday said. There will even be a special University of Oregon section of seating at the parade June 11.
Congratulations to our DUCKS!!!
