The application deadline for the 84th Annual Texas Rose Parade has been extended to Sept. 15.

If you were hoping to participate in this year's parade, but thought you missed your window - you're in luck! The parade application is available on the Texas Rose Festival website.

The theme for 2017, is Celestial Wonders, and we'll no doubt see some sparkly, bright and vibrant floats moving down Front St. on Saturday, Oct. 21.

A full slate of activities associated with the festival will begin next month beginning with the 3rd Annual Roses in the Park Concert to kick off the festival on Saturday, Oct. 14, featuring Cory Morrow, and free admission.
