It's official: Lenox will host Dogwood Festival

CL's 2008 Atlanta Dogwood Festival Coverage

We don't know how they'll get blooming dogwood trees onto the pavement at Lenox Square Mall, but that's where this year's version of the Dogwood Festival will be held. Organizers made the announcement today that the 72nd annual festival will move to Buckhead from its traditional spot in Piedmont Park, which is off-limits this year because of the drought.

It will be a different kind of atmosphere, for sure. Part of the fun of the festival is going out to Piedmont Park as spring bursts into the air. Will it inspire a one-for-all, all-for-one vibe? Or will it kill the entire vibe of the festival?
