Every year, just before the city streets shut down for the Rose Parade, the bridges raise for a parade of ships that floats up the Willamette River to join in the festivities held at Waterfront Park. Frigates, patrol boats, destroyers, and cutters, double and triple dock up to the sea wall and allow civilians to board for free tours. Watch the fleet along Tom McCall Waterfront Park's esplanade seawall from the Steel Bridge to Waterfront Village.
