The Texas Rose Festival 2008 probably the biggest event in East Texas during the month of October. This October 16th-19th will be no different. People from all over keep coming back, year after year, to be part of Texas' most beautiful event. You'll be overwhelmed by the unbelievable aroma of hundreds of thousands of roses displayed in artful arrangements at the Rose Show, growing in manicured beds in the Rose Garden and covering hundreds of acres in the rose fields. Anyone can enjoy "tea with the Queen" at an annual community celebration. Relive the past in the beautiful Rose Museum; be enchanted by courtly costumes at the Queen's Coronation; and admire the artisans' touch at the Palette of Roses Art Show. When your eyes have taken it all in, treat your ears and tap your feet as the bands march by in the Rose Festival Parade. Come see why everyone who visits the Texas Rose Festival leaves saying, "I'll be back!"
You can check out most of the info at http://www.texasrosefestival.com/pdf/TRF-Brochure-2008.pdf. This brochure will give you the schedule and the prices for all the events. It is a great weekend to enjoy some culture in E Texas, so I invite everyone to come out this way and enjoy the festival.
