Several members of the 1977 NBA Championship-winning Portland Trail Blazers will be the grand marshals of the 2017 Grand Floral Parade.

According to the Blazers, Bobby Gross, Lloyd Neal and Larry Steele will be present at the parade, which will be held on Saturday, June 10 at 10 a.m.

“We are honored that the Rose Festival selected our 1977 Championship team with this distinction,” Trail Blazers President & CEO Chris McGowan said in a news release. “Much like the Grand Floral Parade, our organization takes tremendous pride in its history and our relationship with the people in this community. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate the 40th Anniversary than with Trail Blazers players parading the streets of Portland once again.”
