ATLANTA -

Thousands of people ventured to Piedmont Park on Saturday for The 77th Annual Dogwood Festival.  For many, it was a change of pace from the turmoil and stress they've experienced in the last week.  

Saturday's weather couldn't have been brighter for the festival, and that was good news for organizers and patrons alike.  The Boston Marathon bombings left many people emotionally drained, and the rides, live music, and festival atmosphere provided a great escape.

Atlanta police beefed up security for the weekend festival, bringing and extra sense of comfort to those looking to relax.  

The Dogwood Festival continues through Sunday at Piedmont Park.  For more information, click here.
