Texas Rose Festival Begins

The ribbon is cut and the 2007 Texas Rose Festival begins in Tyler. Thursday morning, the Rose Queen and others from the court helped cut the ribbon of roses, beginning this year's festivities. The rose show began at 10 a.m. Thursday at the Tyler Rose Garden. This year's queen, Grace Ramey, told KLTV 7 what the prestigious position means to her. 

"It's special cause my family has such a long history of it and I'm really just trying to honor Tyler and serve as an ambassador of Tyler so I represent it in a very good way," said Rose Queen Grace Ramey.

The Rose Festival runs through October 21st.
