The cherry trees are blooming throughout Macon, just in time for the Cherry Blossom Festival's 30th anniversary.
Director of sale and marketing, Stacey Campbell, says she spotted her first blossom right outside her office.
"It looks like right now, we are right on schedule. I drove in this morning. A lot of them are doing what we call popping. When they do bloom, they pop like popcorn," she said. "They might be a little sporadic the first weekend, but normally by mid-week, the end of next weekend, they'll be in full bloom, and it should be a fabulous cherry blossom festival."
She says more than 300,000 trees are scattered around the city. Clusters can be found on Third Street, Central Park City, and Wesleyan Woods.
The cherry blossom first got started in Macon at The Fickling Farm.
On about 140 acres, Fickling says there are more than 1,000 Yoshino cherry blossom trees growing.
