The application deadline to apply to be an Azalea Belle at the 58th Annual Azalea and Spring Flower Trail is Jan. 23.

Applications can be found online at or at local high school counselor’s offices.

This year’s Azalea and Spring Flower Trail will take place in the Downtown Azalea district March 24 – April 9.

Azalea Belles wear antebellum dresses throughout the three-weekend event and are needed to promote Tyler, greet tourists and pose for photographs.

The opportunity is open to freshmen and sophomore high school girls residing in Smith County who will be available for the event times and enjoy working with people. The girls must be academically eligible and are required to attend certain events and trainings.

Visit Tyler will provide the dresses. A typical schedule involves working more than three hours on Saturday mornings or afternoons as well as Sunday afternoons, and there will be at least two Belles at each location.
