"'For six months a small band of [San Jose's] sons, assisted and encouraged by hundreds of enthusiastic citizens, have achieved a triumph that will live long in the memory of all beholders.'
'People watched the parade 'bleary-eyed' after staying up all night preparing floats along with the rest of the community. They had a 'sense of invovlement with their community which is rare today.' '
'The Fiesta has gone but it has left a scent of beauty with those who saw it--a faint odor of loveliness, a remembrance of hospitality and gratefulness for having lived.'
Roses on Parade celebrates the people in the last century responsible for holding rose-themed parades, celebrations and fiestas here in Santa Clara County. This book intends to revive the tradition back to this generation of Santa Clara County residents."
