PERRY, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT)- Perry’s Dogwood Festival, planned for this weekend, has been canceled, according to Ellen Palmer, President/Chief Executive Officer of the Perry Chamber of Commerce.
Palmer cited this weekend’s weather forecast, which calls for scattered storms Friday and Saturday, and said they want to keep visitors and vendors out of danger.
This is the second year in a row that the Dogwood Festival has been canceled. Last year’s festival was canceled because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
