Macon Is The Cherry Blossom Capital Of The World

More than 300,000 Yoshino Cherry Trees bloom in Macon for a brief couple of weeks in March every year, and the city celebrates with its annual International Cherry Blossom Festival. To say the town turns pink during this time would hardly be an exaggeration. Fountains are dyed pink, houses sport pink wreaths and ribbons, cars feature pink blossoms painted in their windows, and the trees themselves put on a show. The festival includes concerts, charity events and a fair at Central City Park.
