Enjoy the Starlight Parade after Dinner through the unobstructed picture window in our Private Suite overlooking 4th Avenue. But first, see the Starlight Run. Portland’s most popular Fun Run is cheered by more than 250,000 spectators who line the Starlight Parade route to see the costumed competition up close.

More than 4,000 runners are projected to run this year.  The Starlight Run is not only the largest Fun Run in Oregon, but also the most entertaining – with participants vying not only to break the tape, but to claim prizes for best individual and best group costumes.

The Starlight Parade offers funky, eclectic fun for everyone. From traditional marching bands and flood-lit floats, to glow-in-the-dark umbrellas and unique hand-built entries. You’ll see the best of Portland’s (and surrounding Northwest region’s) most diverse community groups together in one whimsical pageant.

The Parade continues a longtime festival tradition from the early 1900s, when illuminated floats built on electric trolley cars made their way through the city on trolley tracks. Today, participants light up the night with approximately 100 illuminated entries. The parade draws more than 250,000 spectators to downtown Portland. Don’t miss the fun of one of the Rose Festival’s best and brightest traditions.
Portland Prime has closed and the space is vacant. Instead, we’re going to do an appetizer potluck.   Bring a small portion but high quality appetizer. Not just something from Costco. Our dinner entrée will feature steak by Dana Atwood.

Another great wine event beginning with NV Cloutier Rose’ Champagne in honor of the Rose Festival and 2003 Chaleur Estate from DeLille Cellars. Bring 1 bottle per person of your high end, top shelf BEST WALLA WALLA RED to enjoy during dinner and afterwards during the Starlight Parade.







No Corkage. Gratuity is included.

Due to Fun Run, approach via SW Ash from SW Naito Parkway.  Street Parking $1.00 (meters quit at 7pm)

Please bring great wines such as Leonetti Reserve, Woodward Canyon Old Vines, Basel Cellers, and similar.
