Give the Gift of the Rose Festival During this Holiday Season!
With one-of-a-kind gifts, the Portland Rose Festival will appear for the first time ever at America’s Largest Christmas Bazaar the next two weekends. Specially discounted merchandise, prime KeyBank Grand Floral Parade tickets and certificates for the festival’s official rose will all be available at the Christmas Bazaar during event hours Friday through Sunday, November 28-30 (this weekend) and December 5-7 (next weekend) at the Portland Expo Center (located in north Portland).
Ticket sales for the KeyBank Grand Floral Parade start today! Enjoy seeing three events for the price of one: The Regence Grand Floral Walk, the Queen’s Coronation Presented By Pacific Power and the KeyBank Grand Floral Parade — all in the comfort of the Memorial Coliseum!
Gift certificates are available for the 2009 Oregon Celebration Rose, the official rose of both the Rose Festival and Oregon 150 in recognition of Oregon’s birthday. This rose is a vibrant yellow Grandiflora — an offspring of the popular ‘Strike it Rich’ rose. Signature roses will be available at Dennis’ 7 Dees starting on February 14, which is Oregon’s 150th birthday! Buying a gift certificate in advance guarantees that you’ll have your rose reserved when they become available. Be a part of history with this special rose. Gift certificates make great stocking stuffers! (Note: Quantities of the rose are limited.)
