A Century of Celebration ... a Century of Memories!

2007 marks the Rose Festival's Centennial Celebration. Your memories and the memories of people like you are part of the rich history of the Rose Festival -- and we want to share those stories with the world.

Whether you've watched the Grand Floral Parade from the same spot year after year, whether your mother or sister or daughter was a Rose Festival princess, whether you marched in a band or raced your milk carton boat or sold corndogs at the carnival or policed the honor line –- or whether you just experienced your very first Rose Festival last year –- you have a story to tell!
