MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) - The pinkest party on earth is just around the corner, and now you can purchase a new pin to get in the spirit early!
The official Cherry Blossom pin is $10. It allows you to enter several of the Cherry Blossom events without having to pay an admission fee.
The President and CEO of the festival says for the first time organizers held a contest to choose the pin's designer.
"We asked all local artist and artist throughout the state to send in their drawings of potential pins, and Barclay Burns, a local artist won the design for this year's pin," said Jake Ferro, Cherry Blossom Festival President.
This year, you can also purchase a Cherry Blossom discount card, which can be used at a number of restaurants in Middle Georgia. The discount card can be used immediately upon purchase.
Between the pin and the discount card, you can save more than $200 over the course of the 10-day festival.
The pins and discount cars are available at the Cherry Blossom Office located at 794 cherry street in Macon.
