Thomasville, GA-The 92nd Thomasville Rose Show and Festival wrapped up Saturday.

Hundreds of roses from across the south were on display at the show.

Organizers say there were less roses at this year's show than last year's because of the cooler weather.

This year's Queen Rose was a Gold Medal Hybrid Tea from Tallahassee.

Spectators at the Rose Show say they were impressed by the color and beauty of this year's roses.

"I like to see little differences and variety. So I like to see little splashes, it looks like bleach or something, white and pink and oranges, different things like that. Not original. I like to be different and unique," said Edward Pino who attended the Rose Show.

The roses are judged on several factors including form, color and substance.
