North Georgia Apple Festival

With the cooler days, everyone knows apple picking and apple festival season is just around the corner.  A great week-end activity for North Georgia residents is picking some apples and attending the Georgia Apple Festival in Elijay.  The Apple Festival this year will be the week-ends of Oct. 13-14 and Oct. 20 -21. This is the 41st year of the Festival.  There will be over 300 vendors with crafts, demonstrations, and food.  It’s great way to get a head start on your holiday shopping.  I know my family likes the great things I got last year.  There are also ponies rides and small animals for kids to see. {[}]{[}]There is an antique car show on Oct. 13 at the Gilmer Civic Center.  On Oct. 20 there is a parade in downtown Elijay.   After the Apple Festival be sure to stop in any of the apple orchards for some of those great Georgia apples.  Elijay is a short scenic drive up I -575, perfect for one of these upcoming week-ends.{[}]{[}]
