THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - Thomasville city leaders said the 98th Annual Rose Show and Festival is starting in the cutest way possible.

Hundreds of children will participate in the 41st Annual Rose Bud Parade, and for many, it’s their first time.

The Rose Bud Parade began at 7 p.m. on the corner of Broad Street and Washington Street Thursday.

Thomasville city leaders said around 50 groups will participate this year.

Brookwood School was one of many organizations who had a float on display.

Administrators said nearly 30 students and four teachers were inside a Lego themed float.

The school motto is, “A Community Building Leaders” and Legos plays off that, perfectly.

“I want to be a veterinarian," said Rollin Murphy, a student.

“I want to be a rock star,” said Frances Crocker, another student.

“I’m going to be dressed up as an astronaut,” said student Miller Holt.

" I’m going to be dressed up as a police[man]," said Conner Phillips, a student.

Those four Brookwood School students said they’re excited to get dressed up and wave to people who are coming to watch.

Administrators said they’ve been a part of this for several years and it’s a great way to get a lot of students involved, whether it be creating the float, or being inside it during the parade.

The parade ended at the Synovus Bank drive-thru on East Jefferson Street.
