Holt Joins the Strutter Ranks
Each year, Tyler, Texas produces what might be the largest festival in the state as thousands of people attend an entire week of special events. Since its beginning in 1933, the Texas Rose Festival has represented the spirit that brings Tyler together as a community. Rich in heritage and tradition, the Festival offers enchanting ceremonial events – the Queen’s Coronation, Ribbon Cutting and Rose Presentation, the Queen’s Tea, and the Rose Parade – all amidst a backdrop of brilliant roses as vibrant and colorful as the community it represents. The Texas Rose Festival is held the third weekend of October every year, but the Tyler Rose Garden is open year-round. Founded in 1939, the Strutters Executive Board members are responsible for running the Texas Rose Parade which spotlights this week-long festival.
