The Portland Rose Festival Association, with the cooperation of the Portland Junior Chamber of Commerce, will this year inaugurate a MEKRYKAMA PARADE which promises to become one of the highlights of the Rose Festival each year.
It is planned to have such a parade for Saturday night, June 12th, the last night of the festival.
The general scheme of the parade, as well as suggested ideas are contained in the enclosed broadside. The cooperation of all employees associations, schools, fraternities and lodges, and civic groups is expected. There will be no entry fee and prizes totaling $600 will be awarded.
The natural possibilities for such a parade are many and because of its appeal to humor and fun, it should become an important function of the Rose Festival.
You are urged to read the enclosed and promptly advise the Rose Festival office, 1U05 Public Service Building, if your group will have an entry in the MSRRYKAKA PARADE.
Please post this circular in a prominent place.
Yours for a better Rose Festival
Moe Tonkon, Chairman MERRYKAHA PARADE
