The 2012 Rose Lighting Ceremony & Fireworks spectacular (which this year they’re calling the RoZone Fireworks Experience presented by Pacific Power) takes place Friday, May 25.
Portland’s downtown waterfront illuminates during the Fireworks Spectacular, the Portland Rose Festival’s kick-off event.
One of Oregon’s largest fireworks displays, this thunderous pyrotechnics show soars over CityFair beginning at nightfall.
Festivities begin at 8pm at Tom McCall Waterfront Park with a musical entertainment.
The Rose Lighting Ceremony takes place at 9:45pm, followed at 10pm by the one of the state’s largest fireworks displays.
Admission is free, and the good fireworks viewing can be found any place with a nice view of the Willamette River downtown.
