DIXON --  Downtown Dixon is pushing up petunias!

It's the 50th annual Petunia Festival. Thousands flooded the downtown area to participate in the fun. The festival boasts everything from great food, to entertainment, and even fireworks.

Organizers say this year Mother Nature even lent a hand in making the event a success.

"With the temperatures this year have been very nice, keeps the crowds happy, if it's too hot people don't want to come out  so the weather has been very decent for us," said Andrew Brockwell, President of the 2014 Petunia Festival.

The event wrapped up at 10pm Sunday.
