The 2017 Rose of Tralee will be crowned tonight, and RTÉ Entertainment has been on the streets of Tralee to savour the big night buzz.

We met locals, tourists and former Roses who all shared the same view: there's something very special about the show and what it brings to the Kerry town.

Have a watch below.
