Texas Rose Festival's Queen's Tea

The Texas Rose Festival continued Friday in Tyler, with the annual Queens Tea.

The Rose Queen and her court greeted visitors and awed crowds with their gorgeous gowns Friday afternoon. We learned that this year's queen, Grace Ramey, comes from a long line of royals. Her grandmother was also a Rose Queen. 

"Fourteen years ago she was sitting on her grandmother's lap and she jumped down and said 'I want to be queen'. 14 years later she is," said Toby Taylor, Red Hat Society Member.

Saturday, the big Texas Rose Festival Parade takes place. That will run from 9:30 a.m. until noon in Tyler along Front Street. Preferred viewing is at the Trinity Mother Frances Rose Stadium.
