Left to Right, John Valdez and Eugene Chavez, members of the 4th degree Knights of Columbus, raise their swords in front of Bethany Rodrigues, representing Queen Isabella, at the end of a parade for the Portugese Festa do Divino Espirito Santo at Holy Apostles Catholic Church Sunday June 1, 2014. The festival celebrates Queen Isabella, who, according to legend, stole bread for the poor against her husband's wishes by hiding it her skirts. When her husband became suspicious and asked what she was hiding, she opened her skirts and there were roses instead of bread. She was since known as the Queen of Roses.
