To complement this romantic flower, a plethora of cultural events are organised, including musical shows, traditional dance performances, photography contests, folk concerts and the like. But the highlight of the event is roses – more than 50000 varieties of rose’s grace the occasion, as children flock to the garden in order to participate in a unique contest – they vie amongst themselves to get the prestigious title of ‘Rose Prince/Princess!’ India’s greenest city takes great pride in hosting this festival year after year.
