After a two year break, Thomasville celebrated its 101st Rose Festival
The city of Thomasville celebrated its 101st rose festival last weekend. During their meeting this week, city commissioners said they think it was one of the best yet.
Councilmember Wanda Warren said the festival helps to highlight what the city has to offer.
“Everything just came together so well, and I am just so amazed at how everyone worked so well together and I appreciate it," Warren said. "We do have a beautiful city here and we just put it on display this weekend and we just shined, shined, shined."
Warren said she hopes to see the festival continue to grow in the coming years.
The Rose Show and Festival has been a Thomasville tradition since 1922, but this is the first time the city has held its festival since 2019. The 2020 and 2021 Rose Festivals were canceled because of concerns about the coronavirus pandemic and severe weather.
