AND NOT TO BE OUTDONE BY SAINT PATRICK, MACON BEGINS TO BE PINK WITH ITS CHERRY BLOSSOM FESTIVAL STARTING MARCH 18TH; IN WITH THE PINK!
Macon has more Yoshino Cherry Trees than Washington, DC. These are beginning to bloom now and with temperature at about 86 on Friday, they will really pop! The nearly two week festival brings people from all over the country and world to Macon. Since these Cherry Trees originated in Japan, our prayers and thoughts go to them as they continue to experience and survive their natural catastrophe.
Everyone in Macon wears Pink. Pink is in; green is out!
And a nice tour of Macon, with some inside shots of St. Joseph Church:
