While memorizing names and dates are important in their own right—we’re turning this weekend into our own history course! It is what the great people of the past have done that has inspired and influenced who we are today, both as a society and as individuals. This weekend, we want to take a closer look at how our nation and its culture have grown throughout the years!

Portland Veterans Day Parade: Nov 11th

Portland’s only Veterans Day parade was established in 1974. Vernon E. Ross, the proprietor of Ross Hollywood Funeral Chapel, founded the parade to honor all past and present living and deceased veterans. Today, the tradition is carried on by local organizations and individuals. The parade would not be possible without our volunteers and generous sponsorships. Visit veteransdayPDX.org to view the parade route/location, register to be in the parade, sign up to volunteer, and sponsor.

The Kumoricon family is growing with every passing year, making it the largest anime convention in Oregon.
