Having been Portland Trail Blazers for nearly a year now, Pat Connaughton and Noah Vonleh took part in Portland’s annual Rose Festival by riding a float in the Grand Floral Parade this morning. The two of them wore top hats, as their float was Alice in Wonderland themed. And why not? The Trail Blazers are a huge part of Portland’s identity and the Rose Festival is a celebration of civic pride. Enjoy these photos from the parade.
