CHICO, Calif. - The Butte Rose Society is gearing up for its 25th annual festival of roses happening Saturday, Oct. 26.

The Butte Rose Society is a non-profit organization dedicated to the enjoyment of roses. Membership is open to all those who are interested in roses.

"With the winter weather and water availability cooperating, the array of roses expected at the annual show is sure to be stunning," The BRS said.

The show will go from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Chico Community Center, 545 Vallombrosa Ave. Admission to the show is free. There will be educational exhibits, a photograph competition, new arts section that must incorporate roses, along with activities for the kids.

Hundreds of roses, grown by local rose lovers, are expected at the show. Growers in the Butte Rose Society will also be at the show.
