Cherry Blossom Festival Celebrates Rainy Last Day

The "pinkest party" came to an end Sunday evening.

It's the only time of the year Blossom gets to be the best dressed poodle in town.

"We grew up when poodle skirts were popular. So pink and poodle went together with cherry blossom and the festival," says Paul Williams of Macon.

She wasn't the only one prancing around in their pinkest pink.

"This is our 31st festival, I happened to be involved the whole 31 years," says Cherry Blossom Festival board member Charles Jay.

From blushing pups toBengaltigers, visitors flocked to Macon to enjoy the week-long festival.

"We can plan. We've got hundreds of volunteers that can help us. We can budget certain items, but it comes down to the weather. If we have beautiful weather, it makes a big difference," says Williams.

There were a few last minute changes, the street party rocked inside the Macon City Auditorium and the arts and crafts festival was moved from Mulberry Street to the Farmer's Market.

"We were born and raised in Macon so we think it's a little town but people come from all over the world to visit Macon and I go why? But it is a great town," says Williams.
