Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

On the last day of his town's [Lewis and Clark Centennial Exposition, in 1905], Mayor Harry Lane gave a speech proposing a "Festival of Roses" in the near future. Christening Portland the "Rose City," Mayor Lane dreamed out loud of spending the receipts from the exposition, $130,000, to buy land and plant a test garden that would one day contain the most beautiful roses in the world.

Two year later, on a sunny Thursday in June, 2,000 grade school children marched at the head of the first Rose Parade. Its organizers declared the two-day carnival and fiesta "everybody's festival." No king or queen.

Synopsis:

Oregon's biggest summertime extravaganza is displayed in photographs--including some previously unpublished historicals--and accompanied by text from a veteran newsman.

Synopsis:
