Thomasville- The 85th annual Thomasville Rose Show and Festival is officially in bloom. Opening ceremonies were held around one o'clock marking the official start to the two day show. Judging was held this morning for the hundreds of roses in the rose tent.

"That room is full of beautiful roses. I was down here about six o'clock this mroning and I was watching the rose growerws get their roses ready picking their beautiful roses and it's amazing to men some of the one they call the bad ones I would love to have in my yard," said Karen Smith, Downtown Thomasville Main Street.

Miss Thomasville, Leah Massee, was crowned Georgia's Rose Queen. Friday night's 58th annual Rose Parade will feature 30 floats and 100 different units.
