Note: Bus 63 comes only once an hour (times vary – check schedule) Between Memorial Day and Labor Day, there is a Washington Park Shuttle that comes every 15 minutes. Your MAX ticket will transfer to the bus."

Mary and Jason's Wedding

"Portland is known as the City of Roses. Roses should be in full bloom by early June. The test rose garden is a beautiful Portland landmark. Founded in 1917, Portland’s International Rose Test Garden is the oldest official, continuously operated public rose test garden in the United States. In the beginning, even though World War I was raging in Europe, hybridists sent roses from around the world to Portland’s garden for testing and to keep the new hybrids safe from being destroyed by the bombing in Europe"

"Portland has long had a love affair with roses. In 1888, Georgiana Burton Pittock, wife of pioneer publisher Henry Pittock, invited her friends and neighbors to exhibit their roses in a tent set up in her garden; thus the Portland Rose Society was established. By 1905 Portland had 200 miles of rose-bordered streets which helped attract visitors to the Lewis and Clark Centennial celebration. Portland came to be known as the 'City of Roses.'"
