Saturday marks beginning of Audubon Dogwood Festival

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Saturday was the official start of the annual Audubon Dogwood Festival.

Live music, plenty of food, and trees in full bloom greeted residents of the Louisville neighborhood.

Hundreds of dogwoods are blooming and visitors strolled through the park and took photos.

The festival began in 1971, and is a way for Audubon residents to showcase what the area has to offer.

"We are proud of the trees because of how beautiful they are but also recognize they are making a difference in our community. We are proud of the dogwood because they are beautiful but all the the trees are important," said Amy Shelton, co-organizer of the event.

Upcoming events over the next few weeks include a memorial tree planting and memorial concert.
