well it rains ever year of the dogwood festival so I think it should be held in June or later in the month of may so it will be prettier weather.

That is a good thought, but the festival is called the dogwood festival because it coincides with the blooming of the trees. If it is moved they would need to rename it as well.

As I recall, July 8, 2001.....we got some rain then too. Keep the Dogwood where it is. Too many people have cabin fever and are ready to get out. Considering what everybody went through, I thought they festival recovered very well. Billy Jo Royal was wonderful for going ahead and playing even though he could've got his money and run. We lost the busiest day of the festival. but there will be more to come.

There are a few things that supercede a festival, I think a natural disaster would qualify as such an event. It just comes with the territory, look at Nascar for instance, they can't even get races in due to rain, it happens, it sucks, but it happens.
