Rose festival - Rose show - Barcelona
"Concurs Internacional de Roses Noves" Rose festival & Rose show in Barcelona. Every year at the beginning of May the rose gardens at the Cervantes Park host the "Concurs Internacional de Roses Noves," the Barcelona International Competition for New Roses, which has attracted participants from all over the world since 2001. There are seven prizes in the competition and the coveted first prize is simply called 'Barcelona', which is award to the best new rose. When deciding who wins the "best rose" award a panel of local and international floral experts evaluate all aspects of the new rose and take into consideration technical factors like hardiness, development, leaf, flower, fragrance and resistance and more obvious factors like novelty, fragrance and appearance. Apart from the glory, the winning rose also gets a place of honour in the Rose Garden of the Parc de Cervantes alongside previous year's winner. The International New Rose Competition also features concerts, floral arrangements and other activities. A great day out for the whole family and very nice activities for children.
