County employees, their family members, volunteers, and other friends and supporters are all welcome to march in the parade, which begins at 11 a.m. at the North Park Blocks at W. Burnside Street and ends at Tom McCall Waterfront Park.

This is the second year Clackamas County has participated in Portland Pride.
