If it’s Spring in Atlanta, it must be time for the Atlanta Dogwood Festival. This is an annual event not to be missed and a traditional rite of seasonal passage. Plus, it’s a heck of a lot of fun! The primary draw, of course, are the endless line of artist venue booths displaying their wares, some of which are quite unique. Food and drink are strategically placed everywhere and you’re constantly tempted by the waffing aromas. Did I mention the live bands playing all sorts of music to keep you entertained? Of course, then there is the people watching…or should that be watching out for people?
One of the most interesting vendors that caught our eye is William F. Colburn, Jr., Iron Artist, Sculpture for Home & Garden based out of Fairhope, Alabama. If you attend the festival, stop by his booth and check out his work. Pretty impressive & creative!
How about the Deep Fried Pickles and Sweet Potato Ribbon Fries stand? It’s a Southern thing!! Oh well, the weather is perfect, the temperature mild and the crowd well behaved. What better way to spend a early Spring weekend!
