This silent film from the Tyler Rose Museum captures highlights of the 1948 Texas Rose Festival, including footage of the Rose Parade and football game between two Tyler-area high schools. The rose industry began in Tyler near the turn of the century and, currently, approximately one-fifth of the nation's commercial rose bushes are produced in Smith County. The Tyler Rose Museum is the home for Tyler's unique rose history, with videos and photographs chronicling the area's agricultural history and Rose Festival memorabilia and hand-sewn costumes dating back to 1935. The museum's interactive displays and theaters bring October's Annual Texas Rose Festival to life year ‘round.
