The 88th annual Rose Show and Festival kicks off this evening with the Children's 31st Annual Chilren's Rose Bud Parade. I have come to Thomasville for several years to run the annual Rose City 10k ( a scenic 6.2 mile race that starts on downtown Broad Street), but the weekend of festivities include Live music downtown, parades, an orchid show, the Golf Classic Tournament, and Equestrian Dressage Show at Pebble Hill Plantation, and of course, in infamous rose show!!
You should also checkou the "Big Oak while visiting Thomasville. This is a "been there, done that" type of thing.. you don't have to stay for long!
