For many years the Yellow Rose Ball, named for the wild yellow roses planted by the Cornish miners, was a tradition in Central City.  The Central City Opera House Association adopted the Yellow Rose as the symbol of The Central City Opera Opening Night events.

The Opening Night performance is underwritten by past Flower Girls and their families.

The 2014 Flower Girls are McKenna Grace Adams, Larissa Grace Babiak, Kathryn Mabis Chase, Abigail Sarah Clark, Anne Elizabeth Clinton, Sarah Dorothy Louise Dinegar, Tatiana Sachi Goderstad, Jessica Joan Grewe, Madeline Emma Hantman, Nicole Hooper Kerman, Hannah Margot McDaniel, Lindsey Tatum Mygatt, Rebecca Jane O’Brien, Jennifer Diane O’Brien, Emily Elizabeth O’Neal, Burgandi Alice Owens, Caroline Elizabeth Raeder, Madeleine Marie Ripley, Lily Irene Rodgers-Masamori, Eliza Samuelson, Elizabeth Brooke Smedley, Marigny Carman Strauss, Emily Marie Toltz, Sarah Brophy Tyree and Grace Catherine Wilkins.
