MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – Macon, Georgia is the Cherry Blossom Capital of the World. Wesleyan College and Visit Macon plan to share those blossoms with everyone.
Home to 350,000 cherry trees, Macon hosts the International Cherry Blossom Festival each March.
President and CEO of Visit Macon Gary Wheat says that his organization is thrilled about the partnership. They named the webcam the “Bloom Cam.”
The Bloom Cam shows a live view of the trees from the Wesleyan College campus.
“Having a live webcam view enhances the experience of the cherry blossom bloom, as well as invites viewers from around the world to visit Macon as we welcome spring,” Wheat said.
EarthCam says that Wesleyan College “boasts some of the oldest and most magnificent cherry blossom blooms in the city.”
