JoiN tIhe Rose FesiJvaI "I^arA(h of FestIvaIs"
This 1975 Portland Rose Festival will be the 67th annual edition of a celebration which had its beginnings in a rose show in 1889. That show, presented by the Portland Rose Society, is still a featured event of this year's Rose Festival. In 1904-5-6 the Rose Society staged a Fiesta to add excitement and in 1907 civic leaders expanded this to become a Rose Festival.
The 1907 Festival had a reigning Queen, "Queen Flora", and the featured event that year was a parade of twenty illuminated floats on railway flat cars.
Today, the Queen of Rosaria is chosen from among the area's high school graduating seniors and the railway cars have given way to stately all-floral floats of the Grand Floral Parade, climax of each year's Rose Festival.
