The Big Float is an annual parade and beach party that takes place on the Willamette River. The event is put on by the non-profit Human Access Project. They want the public of Portland to know that they can go swimming in the summertime! Unless there's a sewer overflow event, but they promise that's less likely than a Willamette whale. So go swimming!
