Macy's Holiday Parade - 2010
If you're planning on shopping downtown on the Friday after Thanksgiving, don't miss the Macy's Holiday Parade in Portland. It starts at 9 a.m., so if you're one of the people that likes to hit the pre-dawn sales, you'll be ready for a break by then anyway.

The route:
New Parade Route: Beginning on the corner of NW Park and Davis, the parade will travel east on Davis to Broadway, south on Broadway to SW Alder, east on SW Alder (past Macy's) to SW 4th, north on SW 4th to NW Flanders, west on SW Flanders to NW Park Avenue. The parade lasts approximately one hour. Get there early for a good seat!

What you'll see:
Horses, costumed characters, live bands and of course ... giant floats!

Tree Lighting:
Pioneer Courthouse Square is the place to be, starting at 5:30 p.m. on Friday. The 75-foot tree will light up the square.
