If you’re in southern Georgia at the end of April, Road Trips Gardeners, plan to be in Thomasville April 26 through 28, 2012, for the 91st annual Thomasville Rose Show and Parade.

A southwest Georgia tradition since the 1920s, the festival encompasses the Rose Show, which presents contemporary and heirloom roses against a backdrop budding with thousands of the blooms; the Rose Parade, known for its rose carpet and flowery floats; a Street Dance, which brings out boppers young and old; “Orchids on Parade”; Children’s Rose Bud Parade; plus live music, arts and crafts, car show, Southern-style festival foods, children’s fun and games.

Continuing a festival tradition, the Thomas County Museum of History (map) and Lapham-Patterson House (map) will offer presentations and exhibits about Thomasville’s Victorian history and the Rose Show tradition.

For more on visiting the town (map) then (or any time of year), go online.
