Macy’s is proud to usher in the 2011 holiday season on Friday, November 25 with the annual My Macy’s Holiday Parade in downtown Portland. Straight from the North Pole, Santa Claus will be spreading joy and good cheer as he winds his way through the streets of Downtown Portland on his sleigh.
Accompanied by Macy’s unique inflatable floats and costumed characters, Santa will lead the parade to the downtown Macy’s where he will open Santaland at 11 a.m. for the 2011 holiday season.
The My Macy’s Holiday Parade, one of Oregon’s most treasured family traditions, will begin promptly at 9 a.m. 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.
