THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -

The City of Roses' annual Rose Show and Festival has wrapped up. 

The festival has been a Southwest Georgia tradition since the 1920s. 

This year's festival kicked off Thursday with a rosebud parade. 

More than a dozen other events followed between Friday and Saturday, including car and truck shows, fireworks and of course, a whole lot of flowers.

The first Rose Show began in Thomasville in 1922. 

Some years later it grew into a festival.
