Rose Festival Offers Public Rare Opportunity to Attend Princess Announcement

March 12, 2010

Kicking off the final week of Princess announcements, a special free-to-the-public ceremony will be held at the Hollywood Theatre in Northeast Portland Monday, March 15 at 3:30 p.m. to introduce the Metro selection to the Rose Festival Court. Three juniors and two seniors (from Glencoe, Aloha, Sherwood, Tigard and Sunset High Schools) will appear on stage to hear which among them will be chosen to represent their school as a Rose Festival Princess.

Led by Master-of-Ceremonies and Board President, Robert Hansen, this rare public ceremony will feature a performance by the Gladstone High School Jazz Choir and a short welcoming speech by current Rose Festival Queen Rachel Seeman. 2009 Metro Princess Brianna Burnett, (a Tigard High School graduate), will be on hand to present the crown to the new Princess.
