ATLANTA (AP) - Atlanta’s longest-running festival is entering its final day at a popular midtown park.

Thousands are expected to attend the 80th annual Atlanta Dogwood Festival at Piedmont Park on Sunday. The three-day festival is regarded as the kick-off to spring and the third-oldest fine arts festival in the country.

The event involves more than 260 fine arts, live music, a high school art exhibition, the Eco-Village, gourmet and festival fare, midway rides and games. The festival runs from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Sunday.

Several events were held Saturday including the Mimosa 5K run, Chair Hack design competition and the 26th annual Disc Dog Southern Nationals.

Dogwood is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing the annual springtime celebration of arts and entertainment.
