The sun is finally shining in Palestine. We thought it would be an ideal day to check on the dogwoods in Davey Dogwood Park. The cool and wet weather has been the perfect combination for the trees. As of today, we are predicting the dogwoods to be in full bloom the last weekend in March and first weekend in April.

Activities are scheduled each weekend to compliment the Celebration, including the "Dogwoods through the Decades" Festival on Saturday, March 21st. Don't miss the Dogwood Train Brunch at the Texas State Railroad, tours at the historic Redlands Inn, Dulcimer Music Festival, Main Street Farm & Flower Market, live productions at the Texas Theatre and much more.
The annual Texas Dogwood Trails began in 1938. Davey Dogwood Park became the main location of the annual event in February 1944, when Mr. M.A. Davey, a Palestine oil main, purchased this tract of land and deeded it to the Anderson County to be used as a park of natural beauty. This area includes over five and one-half miles of hard-surfaced roads. The park is especially beautiful in the spring with the dazzling white blossoms of the Dogwood Trees and many other native area wildflowers.
