MACON, Ga. — Macon's Cherry Blossom Festival may be canceled due to COVID-19 concerns, but Wednesday, fountains and sidewalks were painted pink for the celebration anyway. 

Cherry Street still got to see the splash of pink that is common this time of year. 

Although "the Pinkest Party on Earth" won't come in the form of a 10-day festival this year, you can still celebrate the beauty of Macon's Yoshino cherry trees by watching them bloom across the city this spring.

Next year's Cherry Blossom Festival is set for March 19 through March 28.
