It’s a “Bloomin’ Good Time for everyone as the Rose Festival’s waterfront activities kick off on May 22 at 5pm for Memorial Day weekend for three consecutive weekends at Gov. Tom McCall Waterfront Park: May 22-May 25, May 28-May 31 and June 3-7, 2015.
Opening Night Fireworks on Friday night, May 22, features a dance party & concert by Hit Machine in the RoZone (free with CityFair admission) and a huge fireworks display. There are TWO brand-new Funtastic rides to try: Rock Star (for the thrill-seekers) and Phoenix Wheel (for the kids). These rides are more affordable than ever if you plan ahead. Unlimited Ride Wristbands are only $35 each when purchased online by May 21 (a $15 savings!), and if you’d like to save on admission, get a CityFair Season Pass – the 2015 Rose Festival Souvenir Pin – and wear it to get in any day CityFair is open (pins are available at Fred Meyer stores while supplies last). We’re open all day on Memorial Day, May 25, too – bring the family out for a holiday tradition!
The second weekend of CityFair is jam-packed with music on the Rose City Stage and the Bridgetown stage, along with A Walk on the Wild Side exotic animals, arts & crafts in the Kids Zone, and cool artifacts in the Rose Festival Museum – all FREE with CityFair admission. Grab Portland Brewing Company’s new Rose Festival Brew – Velvet Majesty – or a local cocktail from the Eastside Distilling Lounge, and enjoy Rose Festival after dark!
The final weekend of CityFair starts on Wednesday (June 3) with an afternoon of free food & beverage samples for CityFair Sampler (free with admission). A featured craft project in the Kids Zone on Wednesday (June 3) and Saturday (June 6) is tie-dye – kids can bring a white shirt, socks, or anything made with cotton fabric and tie-dye it for free! Fleet Week is a highlight this weekend along the waterfront sea wall, and the amazing all-floral float creations from the Spirit Mountain Casino Grand Floral Parade will line Naito Parkway on Saturday afternoon and Sunday for up-close viewing, punctuating a rosy end to Rose Festival Waterfront activities.
