apple top ten

The 37th annual Georgia Apple Festival opened last weekend with over 25,000 in attendance according to headlines in our local newspaper, Times Courier. Apparently neither the economy nor the gas shortage detered the tourists on their quest for apples, arts and crafts, and all things festival.

The special Apple Festival Edition of the paper last week listed the top 10 reasons to visit the Apple Festival:

10. The exercise
9. Midway Fun and Games
8. Arts and Crafts
7. The Entertainment
6. The Critters
5. Community Involvement
4. The Parade
3. The Food
2. The Apples
1. Family Time

If I took a poll around here, the food would probably be #1. What is your favorite reason?

One more weekend to go, so if you are in the mood for apples or festival food or crafts or crowds of folks, y'all come!

We went there a couple years ago. We thought it was enjoyable.

By the way, thank you for the link to the paper. I am always on the lookout for links to N Ga's newspapers for the obituaries.

I've never been but if I was to go it would probably be for the food.

My favorite reason would be #11: Celebration of American Country Life :-) Looks like a happy, heart-warming time!
