For the fifth year in a row, the Portland Public Schools will have a big yellow school bus as an entry in the Pride Portland! Parade. The public is invited to cheer on members of the Portland Public Schools family as they proceed down Congress and High streets in the parade, set for Saturday, June 15.

The Parade, an annual event that celebrates inclusivity, diversity and unity, begins at 1 p.m. Line-up starts at 11:30 a.m. near Monument Square. Portland Public Schools students, staff and families are invited to ride in the school bus or march alongside it. Please arrive before 12:15 p.m. at the latest. Portland Public Schools will line up on Center Street – enter from Free Street. Remember to wear your PPS Pride shirt from previous years if you have one. If you don't, try to wear a shirt in PPS blue.

The route starts at Monument Square and proceeds down Congress Street, turning right onto High Street, then left onto Park Avenue and into Deering Oaks Park.

The Portland Public Schools’ participation in Portland’s parade helps send an important message to our students, staff, families and the public that the district works to foster harmony and understanding, and that it welcomes and values everyone in the Portland Public Schools.
