Valdosta - Over 100 Valdosta vendors are setting up shop for one of the cities biggest events.

The 7th Annual Azalea Festival begins Saturday in Drexel Park.

The Festival features a kids zone, three bands and the goods and services of Valdosta restaurants and retailers.

Almost 40 thousand people are expected to attend. 

"We had 8-10,000 show up for the first festival. We didn't know how many to expect and it has grown each year. Last year we had 30-35,000 and if the weather is good, we'll have even more than that this year," says Joanne Griner, Founding Chair.

The festival will begin 10:00 AM Saturday morning through Sunday at 5:00 PM.
