Every year's St Patrick's Parade seems to have it's own personality. Past year's entries include Washington County Sheriff's armored truck, a variety of floats from schools and local businesses, car clubs and a motorcycle drill team. Royalty have graced the parade from Miss Teen Rodeo, Clark County, Columbia County, Tillamook County, Yamhill County Rodeo Courts as well as Woodland's Planter Days Court. Washington County Sheriff's Mounted Posse always act as Color Guard. Even "Everybody's Friend" Ronald McDonald has joined in the celebration!
