Dedication Day for the Prom Centennial Celebration
SAVE THE DATE & be here for a historic day!
On this day 100 years ago, the Seaside Promenade and Turnaround was officially dedicated by Martha Hagmeier, age 8, who broke a bottle of sea water on the concrete.
Details for the Rededication:
10 am – A parade will take place starting from near the old train station site (now City Hall) down Broadway to the beach. This is the route visitors of the past would take after arriving via train through Astoria. The Royal Rosarians, Portland’s official ambassadors of goodwill, were present at the 1921 dedication and will return to Seaside to join the parade.
11:30 am – The Royal Rosarians prime minister will plant a rose at the corner of Broadway and Holladay in the city’s Historic Gilbert District to commemorate the day’s activities.
1 pm – An official ceremony will take place at the Turnaround, including a flag raising, songs & remarks from mayors past and present, community representatives, and federal/state officials in attendance. A time capsule will be buried during the ceremony and another bottle of sea water will be broken to commemorate the milestone. The public is invited to gather on the beach facing the Turnaround, which will serve as a stage for the ceremony. Those wishing to sit are advised to bring chairs or beach blankets.
