Fall Festival

Hello everyone!
 
Now that the weather is cooling off  and school has started, Fall festivals have begun.  I love going to festivals.  We went to one this past weekend and really enjoyed getting outside.  It was called the Suwanee Day Festival. 
 


 
 
There was a lot of good food to be enjoyed.  Most of it was brought in by local restaurants.  It smelled heavenly!
 


 
Concerts were given throughout the day by various bands and performers.
 
 



 
Here is a shot of the large crowd waiting for the concert to start.
 
 
Several vendors were selling their wares.  Most of them offered hand made items.
 
Here were some that caught my eye.

Jewelry
 



 

Dog Treats

 
 
Birdhouses 
 
 

 
 
Bird Feeders

 
Feed Sack Tote Bags
 





 
The best booth was from a local store, called Outrageous Interiors.
They sell beautiful home decor.
 



And......the best thing just happened to me this afternoon!  This store just informed me that I won their $100 gift certificate I signed up for. I'm just blown away!  I can't wait to go shopping there and find something wonderful (which should be easy).
 
 It was a fun day.  Shuttle buses took us from the parking lot to the festival so we didn't have to worry about driving in the traffic. 

Have you gone to any Fall festivals yet in your area?

Thanks for stopping by!

I haven't gone to any yet, Kelly, but you are right ~ they are all over the place now. I think there are two my daughter mentioned she wanted to go to, so I'm sure we will hit a few before Fall is over!

How fun, Kelly! We haven't done any festivals, yet. We had planned to go to Grapefest this weekend; but the rain changed those plans. The state fair is coming up, so that will more than make up for it!

Congrats on winning the gift certificate! Last year, I went to several Fall shows in late August and September to walk around, but this year I didn't. My big show that I have a booth at is less than 4 weeks away. I can't wait...it is my favorite one.

My fav is the feed sack bags, but then again I've never had a brisket ball, maybe those would be my fav.
