I Thrifted Me Some Pink for The International Cherry Blossom Festival

Friday, March 24, 2017

It's that time again when all of Macon is covered in Pink. Macon hosts the annual International Cherry Blossom Festival, also dubbed The Pinkest Party on Earth. This year's festival marks the 35th year of its' existence. I'll be out supporting it in my new thrifted Nike polo shirt. I scored it from the Rescue Mission Bargain Store this week. I scored other memorabilia from The Salvation Army and Goodwill.
Get out and help The Cherry Blossom Festival Team celebrate 35 wonderful years. This year’s festival runs from March 24th - April 1st! There is something for everyone, arts and crafts, Open Air Market, Cotton Ave. Revival Festival, food concessions and a Food Truck Frenzy on April 1st. Check the local paper for event schedules.

Here is an interesting clip I found on their website:
Each March, Macon becomes a pink, cotton-spun paradise as over 300,000 Yoshino cherry trees bloom in all their glory. For 10 days, festival-lovers are treated to one of the most extravagant displays of springtime color in the nation as they visit the town referred to by Congressional Records as the Cherry Blossom Capital of the World.

Please Go to their website 
https://cherryblossom.com/about-the-festival/festival-history/  to learn about the fully story of a local Maconite the late William A. Fickling Sr., a local realtor, who discovered the first Yoshino cherry tree in Macon while strolling about in his backyard, and how Mrs. Carolyn Crayton went on to play a role in the beginning of a what has grown into to what it is 35 years later.
