There is always something to do in Middle Georgia, but this month there's an abundance of things to do!  It's Cherry Blossom festival time in the cherry blossom capital of the world.  Macon is all pink and ready to celebrate spring with a host of events. 

March 19 | 3:00 PM - Cherry Street @ Third Street 

Presented By GEICO And 41 NBC/WMGT

The Cherry Blossom Festival Parade is one of the Festival’s premier events. Fantastic floats, marching bands, military units, costumed performers, international dignitaries, and more combine to transform an already beautiful historic downtown into a dazzling showpiece. Performers and entertainers dazzle audiences of all ages, so bring your family and experience the magnificent Cherry Blossom Festival Parade. This year’s parade theme is “Rhapsody in Pink, A Southern Melody.” There is no better way to spend a springtime Saturday afternoon!

Admission is free for spectators.

The parade is a rain or shine event and will only be cancelled in the event of inclement weather.

In addition to Cherry Blossom, Huffington Post film critic Jackie K. Cooper says put these on your list of things to do:

After regaining her memory Sister Mary Amnesia realizes she is Sister Mary Paul, a former country singer. Reverend Mother, feeling that one should not waste God-given talent, gets Sister Mary Paul a recording contract and now she is on a national tour. Introducing two new characters, Sister Mary Wilhem (the convent nurse), and Father Virgil Manly Trott (Sister Leo’s real-life brother), this show is filled with hysterical one-liners and infectious comic tunes.
