Folks came to Charleston, Missouri this weekend to celebrate dogwood trees and azaleas at peak bloom with the 46th Annual Dogwood Azalea Festival held April 10-13.

This four day event allowed residents and visitors from other cities and states to tour the six-mile Dogwood Azalea Trail in Charleston, as well as attend a carnival and other festivities.

The theme for this year's festival was "The Glory of Spring" and held events such as the annual 5K Run/Walk, the Miss Dogwood-Azalea Pageant, and the well-known pig races.
