Parade Script:
Please welcome the Victorian Roses Ladies Riding Society.

This group represents upper-class fashion of the Victorian Era. They not only ride and drive a variety of horses, but they have also designed and sewn their own elaborate dress. The group has appeared five times in the Tournament of Roses Parade, including in 2017. These ladies gladly accept opportunities to educate about history by illustrating life in the 1880’s. Not only do they depict a romantic era, but they also raise money for charity. Their latest fundraiser in Lakeside, the Wild West Casino Night, raised thousands of dollars to benefit local horse rescues. For more info about this special group, visit www.victorianroses.org
