The 2019 Rose Parade: “Engaging in Our Community’s Success” will be held on Monday, June 24, 2019 at 6:15pm. The Rose Parade will mark the first day of Rosefest 2019!
The Roseville Rose Parade is a long-standing Roseville (Minnesota) tradition that is built on community pride and sustained by community involvement. It is recognized as one of the top three community parades in our state. Watching the parade is a decades-long tradition, traditionally drawing around 20,000 enthusiastic curbside spectators, and it is televised locally on Cable Access Channel 15.
Our 2019 Celebrity Grand Marshal is Roseville’s own Monte S. Johnson, aka King Boreas LXXXIII of the St. Paul Winter Carnival. He’ll be followed in the parade by the Winter Carnival Royal Family, including the Royal Dog, Murphy (Monte’s Royal Bernese Mountain dog – you can’t miss him!).
Monte is a long-time Roseville resident who has volunteered countless hours in the service of Roseville including Roseville Parks and Recreation, Roseville Youth Basketball Association, the Central Park Foundation, Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Minnesota Special Olympics and many more. The Royal motto of the 83rd Boreas is “Celebrate Community Service.”
The Community Grand Marshal is the Brausen Family. With more than 50 years in the Roseville area, including 38 at their Roseville location at County Road B and Dale St., Brausen’s Automotive has been a staple of Roseville for generations. This third generation family business has been a longtime supporter of Roseville community and neighborhood groups.
