Starlight Parade Adds Glam to the Glitter with 2010 Grand Marshal

May 7, 2010

The parade with the most glitter just got more fashionable as the Portland Rose Festival announced Vancouver resident Seth Aaron Henderson -- winner of Lifetime's "Project Runway Season 7" -- will be the 2010 Grand Marshal for the Portland General Electric/SOLV Starlight Parade (Saturday June 5 at 8:30 p.m.).

"My family and I love parades. We've been to the Starlight Parade. It's a lot of fun, a lot of wacky stuff," says Henderson. "It will be great to be a part of that. I hope by participating I can show the community how much I appreciate all the support I've received. I want to support the community in return." Seth Aaron will ride in the parade with his wife, Tina, and his two children, Megann and Aaron.

Seth Aaron, who has his own label, hopes to expand locally to help create more jobs for the Portland community and give back to the community. "My goal is to start producing works using locally sourced material with the really talented people in the Portland area," he says.
