TYLER, Texas (KETK) – 2022 marks the 89th Texas Rose Festival, with thousands of people visiting Tyler each year for this historic tradition. 'This year, we are in charge of the Rose Show,' said Cassie Hampe, Chair of Rose Activities. 'It is the first activity next week during the Texas Rose Festival. There will be a ribbon cutting ceremony, the Queen will speak, and we will also get to showcase local florists.' The roses do not stop at the Rose Show. From the parade to the luncheon, you can expect to see where Tyler gets the title of Rose Capital of America.
