Rain didn't stop the Cherry Blossom Festival's annual arts and crafts festival.

Vendors set up shop at the State Farmers Market off Eisenhower Parkway.

The Middle Georgia Arts Association organized the event and moved the location because of the weather. 

About 200 vendors signed up this year for the arts and craft event. 

The two-day event started Saturday and ended Sunday. Sharon Batchel has been selling jars of homemade preserves for 24 years.

"To come down and find that they had made arrangements for us, that we were covered and protected and still had good turnout. It's just a great job by the committee," says Batchel the owner and chef of Serenity Gardens.

The weather has caused several event cancellations including the Food Truck Frenzy and the free concert at Central City Park.
