When Rhodora Ruled Supreme

Record #:
The Rhododendron Festival was held in Asheville every year from 1928 through 1942 until the start of the Second World War. The week-long festival consisted of five parades, three balls, a pageant, tours, exhibitions, an amateur tennis championship, and boxing matches. Although the festivals drew people from across the country and were wildly successful, no interest has been made in reviving them.
