International Macon Cherry Blossom Festival - Saturday - 22 March 2014

Today I post several pictures from the second day of the Cherry Blossom Festival.  The weather on Saturday was perfect and there was an abundance of activities for everyone, visitors and local citizens to enjoy.  My Bride and I started the day by participating in the annual Pink Pan Cake Breakfast at Central City Park.  For many, many years the Macon-Bibb Firemen have been making these pan cakes and they are delicious.  The breakfast sausage from a butcher in Wrightsville, Georgia is just spicy enough to be a real treat.  After that My Bride and I took the 2014 Reigning Royalty to several events in Macon.
Shown here is the 2014 Queen and three members of the Court.  The
fourth member was being interviewed for a Citizenship award entitled
"The Golden Eagle" which is a program by "The Telegraph" to recognize
graduating High School Seniors every year in many fields of Citizenship
and Academic Excellence.

This picture was taken in the Gazabo near the Walter
F. Georgia School of Law on Macon's Coleman Hill.

After a Breakfast to welcome the guest from other
cities and festivals we attend some of the Cherry Street Activities
on Saturday afternoon.

On of the fun activities was the children's sidewalk
chalk art contest.  Citizens of all ages have activities
to enjoy every festival.

Here is the complete Royal Court, except for the Senior Queen and her
Court.  The Little Miss and Little Mister 2014 for the
Festival posed with the Royal Court.

The Royal Court assisted the annual Bed Races on Cherry Street
by selecting the Bed which was the most decorative.

In Macon, Georgia even the male gender gets involved in the
appropriate selection of wardrobe to salute the Pink
Cherry Blossoms.

In summary, Saturday was a wonderful day and the Royal Court and the Senior Court enjoyed the "Hromovystia Ukranian Dance Ensemble" at Porter Auditorium at Wesleyan College.  This group from Chicago was fabulous.  Everyone in attendance was amazed by the program these College Students performed.  The perfect conclusion to the first Saturday of the Festival.
