Vanport Memorial Rose Planting

May 24 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am PDT

It’s been 70 years since the Vanport flood. As part of the official Vanport Mosaic Festival, join the Rosarian Honor Guard to witness a rose planting near the band shell at Peninsula Park Rose Garden. This rose planting commemorates the flood, the citizens who lost their lives, and the survivors of the flood. The Rosarian Duchess Gayle Whitehurst is a survivor, just an infant when the tragedy occurred.
