For instance on Wednesday, August 17th, 2016 to Tuesday, August 23rd, 2016 is The Rose Of Tralee Festival. What can you say about the Rose of Tralee?
It’s a phenomenon, it seems like an anachronism and yet it goes from strength to strength, attracting huge numbers of visitors from around the world every year.
Based around the famous song “The Rose of Tralee” this is essentially a competition where young women of Irish ancestry from all over the world, take part in a personality contest. Not a beauty contest, though the winner is likely to be at least very attractive. The ‘roses’ are feted during the week of the festival, each is accompanied by a male escort and they attend various events as VIP guests and parade the streets of the town to the cheers of the crowds.
It all culminates in two nights of interviews, aired live on Irish television, after which a winner is chosen and crowned Rose of Tralee, and begins a year in the role. While this is the main focus of the week, there are also many events taking place in Tralee to entertain the vast crowds, lots of street entertainment and always something going on thoughout the days and nights.
