MUSKOGEE, Oklahoma -- It's an Oklahoma tradition.

Every spring, people from across the state head to Honor Heights Park in Muskogee to take in the sights, sounds, and smells of the Azalea Festival.

"All of our trees and a lot of our flowering shrubs and the tulips are just beautiful right now, so we've got a lot of places you can hike and walk and look and sniff and touch and everything else, so it's a wonderful place to be," Rick Ewing, with Muskogee Parks Department, said.

There's a parade Saturday morning at 11 a.m., followed by the Chili and Barbeque Cook-off.
