Hear the marching band as the floats pass by in the Parade Room. Listen to the recorded voices of former Rose Queens describe their "royal" experience. Beautiful hand-sewn gowns dating from 1935 share display space with bejeweled crowns and scepters.

In the tradition of the best Smithsonian displays, "The Attic" gives visitors a realistic glimpse of life in Smith County throughout the past hundred years.
