44 Vintage Color Pictures of the Portland Rose Festival in 1954

The Portland Rose Festival is an annual civic festival held during the month of June in Portland, Oregon. It is organized by the volunteer non-profit Portland Rose Festival Association with the purpose of promoting the Portland region. It includes three separate parades, along with a number of other activities.

Portland-based photographer Mike Leavenworth made some amazing shots of this festival in 1954 with Kodak Kodachrome color film slide type.

  1. I'm not sure I can ever go back to any other place, after an experience like this. This place is appropriate in a space that lends so much gravitas to events. The venues design is sharp and environment is unbelievably good.

  2. How amazing photographs you have shared with us . Like the guy .
