It's a soggy and cold week in May, and that can only mean one thing: it's time for the annual Rose Festival.
The 104th Rose Festival opens today at 5 p.m. Admission is free for all visitors for Friday night only and then $5 each day after that point.
Unlimited ride single-day wristbands are available for $25 online and $30 onsite for all Funtastic Traveling Show rides.
Musician Curtis Salgado will perform tonight ahead of the rose lighting ceremony and a fireworks show, set for 10 p.m.
The rides at CityFair, formerly known as Waterfront Village, will run from Friday through June 12. Here are some of the other important dates to keep in mind:
