PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — With a slew of last-minute volunteers, the CareOregon Starlight Parade once again hit the streets of Portland Saturday night.

Rose Festival organizers said earlier in the week volunteers were badly needed for the parades, especially the Starlight Parade. The volunteers stepped up and the Starlight Parade rolled.
