The 65th annual dogwood festival wraps up with a downtown parade. Crowds of people gathered around Market and High streets in Charlottesville to catch a glimpse of the parade.
More than 100 organizations took part, including local bands and dance teams.
One woman says she was happy to come out to see friends and have a good time at the annual parade.
“It's great,” says Courtney Moore. “We were surprised by how big it is and how many people came out, so it's really fun.”
“We actually know someone in the parade, so we are hoping to be able to see her.”
Local elected officials also joined in on the parade, like Charlottesville Mayor Satyendra Huja and the Charlottesville City Council.
The last day for the carnival at McIntire park is Sunday.
