Texas Rose Festival History

The beauty and elegance of the Texas Rose FestivalThe beauty and elegance of the Texas Rose Festival
The festival is a celebration of the
rose industry that thrives in Tyler. Seven Tyler-area companies
process and distribute several million roses each year, making the
city deserving of its “Rose Capital” title. About 75% of all roses in
the country are handled in Tyler.
The first Tyler Rose Festival
was organized by Tyler Garden Club members, local rose growers and
the Chamber of Commerce in October 1933 to showcase the importance of
the rose industry to Tyler.
The theme of the event was “Festival
Fairyland”, and included a parade, rose queen’s coronation and a rose
show. The first festival was a success, and the decision was made to
continue the event, and the 1934 festival had as its theme “A Garden in
Venice”.
The annual event was renamed the Texas Rose Festival during the Texas Centennial in 1936.

Loretta Lynn In Concert

in Tyler

 October 16, 2015    Friday   8:00 PM

Caldwell Auditorium    301 South College      Tyler, Texas 75702
For fifty years now, Loretta has fashioned a body of work as
artistically and commercially successful-and as culturally
significant-as any female performer you’d care to name. Her music has
confronted many of the major social issues of her time, and her life
story is a rags-to-riches tale familiar to pop, rock and country fans
alike. The Coal Miner’s Daughter-the tag refers to a hit single, an
album, a best-selling autobiography, an Oscar-winning film, and to Lynn
herself-has journeyed from the poverty of the Kentucky hills to
Nashville super-stardom to her current status as an honest-to-goodness
American icon.

Monkey business! “Caps! Caps for sale! Fifty cents a cap!” The peddler
has a huge stack of caps, balanced carefully on top of his head — brown
caps, blue caps, gray caps, and red caps. Unfortunately, no one wants to
buy a cap. So the peddler goes for a walk in the country and takes a
nap under a shady tree. When he wakes up, the caps are gone — all except
his own checked one! Where could his caps have gone? And how will he
ever get them back? Celebrating the 75th Anniversary of this favorite
book, this new musical will enchant lower elementary children!

 Performance Dates
Fri, Oct 23 at 7:30pmSat, Oct 24 at 7:30pmSun, Oct 25 at 2:30pmThu, Oct 29 at 7:30pmFri, Oct 30 at 7:30pmSun, Nov 1 at 2:30pm

 Here’s a stylish and witty suspense play that was first seen as a 1979
made for TV movie. It originally starred Hal Holbrook, Katherine Ross
and Barry Bostwick. It combines twists and turns and delivers what
mystery fans love most—taut suspense with an ingenious plot. Arthur
Sinclair is a successful world-famous mentalist in the tradition of
Dunninger. His beautiful and much younger wife Allison plots his murder
for the commonest of all motives—greed. She enlists the aid of a
struggling young actor. Her foolproof murder plan cannot possibly
misfire as it’s too skillfully inventive—or is it? After all, Arthur (as
everyone knows) has psychic gifts. But does he? Once the killing scheme
is set in motion, the plot begins to evolve into a maze of confusion.
Nothing is as it seems. Is mind reading possible? Can the future be
foretold? Just when the audience thinks they know what will happen next,
there is another unexpected turn to complicate matters. The mystery
builds to an exciting climax. Surprise ending? Oh Yeah!!!

It will take all of your mental powers to solve this wildly clever and entertaining thriller.

October 30 Is Virgin Night
Oct. 30 at 8 p.m.
Tickets are $10
VIP Box Seats are $80 (admit 4)
Prop bags will be for sale at the door for $5 (outside props are not allowed)
Warning – This show will have swearing during the movie (even the audience will be swearing!)
 VIRGIN
– In the ROCKY HORROR world, this word refers to the many unfortunate
people who have never experienced THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW (RHPS)
in a theater with an audience and a live cast. Seeing it on home video
(Blu-ray, DVD, VHS, Netflix Instant, etc.) or on TV doesn’t count!
Hopefully you are now considering righting this wrong by attending a
showing of Rocky Horror at Liberty Hall.  More Info  http://www.libertytyler.com/ComeSeeAShow/RockyHorrorPictureShowTheVirginEdition.aspx
Then On Saturday

Rocky Horror Picture Show – with live floor show

Oct. 31 at 11 p.m.
Tickets are $20 (includes prop bag)
VIP Box Seats are $125 (admits 4)
Intended for mature audiences – This show will have swearing and sexual undertones during the movie and floor show Join us for an
amazing night of fun! In late 1976 the ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW
premiered at the Westwood Theater in Los Angeles, CA. At that time the
film was considered a failure and did not get a wide release. But on
April Fools’ Day, 1976, Tim Deegan, a young advertising executive at
20th Century Fox, persuaded Bill Quigley of the Walter Reade
Organization to replace the midnight show at the Waverly Theater with
the ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW.The theater manager
would play the record album of the RHPS sound track before the showing
of the film to warm up the audience, and a party atmosphere was
generated as a result. The audiences naturally began to respond, by
booing the villain and cheering the heroes. Audience response was
tremendous!
 The logical step
after talking in unison with, and then at, the screen was actual
physical participation in the film – through the use of props. The first
ones used were rice and cards.
Anyone
who has seen the RHPS a few times knows how to do the “Time Warp”. “It’s
just a jump to the left, then a step to the right… “. Now
thanks to Coby Archa we will have our own local floor show addition to
this “cult classic”. Get your tickets quickly and be ready to party with
us!

So everyone now you know you have to come to tyler and stay with us at The Rosevine Inn Bed and Breakfast!!  Notice the fire that burns at the Inn nightly!! There is way too much going on, and we have
