The weekend’s chilly weather has damaged a number of the azalea bushes at Honor Heights Park in Muskogee. Park employees tell the News On 6, freezing temperatures over the weekend damaged all the plants that were in bloom. For a MapQuest map of the Honor Heights Park in Muskogee click here.

Instead of the bright, vibrant colors you normally see this time of year, there is a lot of brown. Muskogee's annual Azalea festival kicks off this Saturday.
