The Rose Show will be open to the public from 1-4 p.m., along with wine tasting for $5. The awards ceremony will take place at 1:30 p.m.
The Rose Show, now sponsored by Alain Pinel Realtors, began at a Pleasanton bank in the 1930s, when Harry Harding gave his customers rose bushes to show his appreciation for their patronage. His customers returned the favor by bringing back blooms for him in appreciation, inspiring him to start the Rose Show.
Now Realtors from Alain Pinel say they have been inspired by the past Rose Shows to keep this community tradition going and look to forward to continuing the success of the Rose Show.
The library is located at 400 Bernal Ave. in Pleasanton. For more information, go to www.thepleasantonroseshow.com.
