It's pretty much the event of Spring here in Fayetteville. The Dogwood is the official flower of North Carolina, so it's only right that our town's annual festival honors this state symbol. Ironically enough, Dogwood's probably won't have bloomed at the time of the festival, April 22nd - 24th, but I guess that doesn't really matter. The flower is the flower!
