ATLANTA (AP) - Atlanta’s longest-running festival continues for a second day at a popular midtown park.

Thousands are expected to show at the 80th annual Atlanta Dogwood Festival at Piedmont Park. 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.-11 p.m. Saturday including the Mimosa 5K run, Chair Hack design competition and the 26th annual Disc Dog Southern Nationals throughout the afternoon.

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