American Rose Society is hosting it’s national conference during the Texas Rose Festival in Tyler, to be held from October 16 to 19. Rich in heritage and tradition, the festival offers enchanting ceremonial events such as the Queen’s Coronation, the Rose Show, the Queen’s Tea and the Rose Parade.
The parade begins at 9 a.m., October 18. The Tyler Rose Museum was developed to preserve and display the history of Tyler’s rose-growing Industry and the Texas Rose Festival. The Rose Show will display 14,000 individual rose blooms that are put together in arrangements by volunteers. More than half of all commercial rose bushes marketed annually in the United States are packaged and shipped from Smith County.
Location: 420 Rose Park Dr. For tickets and more information, call 903-592-6978, ext. 224 or visit TexasRoseFestival.com.
