                                    Pickens Azalea Festival

The Pickens Azalea Festival, arriving each year the third weekend of April, at the time that azaleas are in bloom, offers a classic car cruise-in, music, rides, arts and crafts vendors, civic and non-profit organizations, the selection of an azalea art contest winner, and much more. The Christian View magazine's Publisher first began reporting on the Pickens Azalea Festival in April, 2000, and each year thereafter, as the then Editor of The Pickens Sentinel, writing articles before the event, to promote the Festival, and then taking photographs during the Festival. The Publisher continues coverage of the Festival here in The Christian View.
