PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

The Portland Rose Festival has been a beloved tradition for over a century, and now it has been nominated as one of the best floral events in the country.

USAToday’s 10Best travel site has included the Portland Rose Festival as a finalist for Favorite Flower Festival, allowing fans to choose between 20 events to determine America’s favorite event.

The experts who nominated the finalists cited the Grand Floral, Starlight and Junior Parades as highlights of the Rose festival, as well as Spring Rose Show, which is the longest running event of its type in the country with the 128th show schedule for this year.

The Rose Festival is competing against such event as the Rose Parade in Pasadena and the National Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington, D.C., as well as two events from Washington state, the Sequim Lavender Festival and the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival.
