Rose Festival And Trail Blazers

If you're on the fence as to whether you'd like to spend part of what is shaping up to be a beautiful weekend at the Rose Festival, maybe the inclusion of various Trail Blazers will give you a nudge in the right direction.

First off, Bill Schonely, a man who needs no introduction in this town, will be the Grand Marshal of the Portland General Electric/SOLV Starlight Parade. I'm sure he'll have his best parade wave ready to go.

By the way, The Schonz turned 80 on Monday, and as part of his birthday celebration, we're soliciting your favorite Bill Schonely moments. Please take a moment to jog down memory lane and recount you most cherished call or run in with the most iconic voice in Portland.

But there's more! If you're looking for something to do during the day, consider going down to the Rose Festival Waterfront Village to check out the NBA Nation Tour stop. Travis Outlaw will be there at 1 p.m. on Saturday, and Martell Webster will be stopping by at 4 p.m. on Sunday. And our old friend and current San Antonio Spur Ime Udoka will make an appearance at 2 p.m. on Saturday. Sure to be a great way to say hello to your favorite small forwards. Here's the full schedule for the NBA Nation stop.
