After we register in the hotel lobby, we’ll head to the Royal Rosarian Knighting Ceremony in the Rose Garden Amphitheater. Our incoming International President (Rosalie Davis-Green) will be knighted during this ceremony.
Knighting Ceremony – Guests are welcome to witness festival pageantry dating back more than a century, as worthy candidates for honorary knighthood kneel before Queen Kahedja of the Realm of Rosaria. The Knighting returns to the beautiful Portland Rose Garden Amphitheater.
Next we’ll attend the Queen’s Garden Party at the DoubleTree Hotel. We’ll be able to meet the past Royalty of Rosaria as well as the 2015 Queen and the 2016 Court. We will also be attending the royal luncheon.
After we recoup from all the festivities we will travel to Columbia River Yacht Club for dinner. There will also be boat rides from 3-5. I’m looking forward to this. Any excuse to get on a boat works for me.
A very busy day, but I’m sure it will be a fun day too.

What a busy plus fun day for you. Have a great and enjoyable time.
We're not sure we can make the lunch as we need to be at the yacht club at two instead of three. We'll see. 🙂
Wow, that does sound like a lot to do and so much fun to see all of it. Sandee, you and Zane have one wonderful day.

I'm with you, any reason to get on the boat is a good one! But this does sound like a fun time just the same.
Getting to traverse different water on a boat works for me. 🙂
