MACON, Ga. — People in Macon took some time to smell the roses at the 8th annual Old City Flower Festival.

Centenary United Methodist Church on College Street hosted the festival this year, which started on Saturday.

15 churches created flower arrangements to display for the public, and some artists are also displaying their paintings and pottery up for sale.

A floral class was also held on Saturday.

Beth Dunwoody, a member of Centenary, says her favorite part about the festival is the team work between the churches.

"How all of the churches come together, helping one another, it's not a competition, it's just simply an opportunity for each of the churches to display their gifts and works of art," Dunwoody said.

Monday, Jan. 21 is the last day to check out the festival.

You can stop by the church from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. Admission is free.

You can see pictures of the rest of the flower arrangements on Centenary's Facebook page.
