Let’s have some good ole downhome fun with some festivals occurring around Georgia this fall. You can drive up from Florida to get some old-fashioned entertainment and meet up with happy folks who love to get out and visit with neighbors and newcomers. An RV is the perfect way to travel this route, as you will be moving along the Georgia highways in style and comfort.
About an hour north of Atlanta, you can join in at the Fall for Chatsworth’s Black Bear Festival in Chatsworth, Georgia. This is a family event which all ages will love. Arts and crafts is one of the favorite treats as there are so many artworks to see and some you may want to take home. Great music, yummy food and plenty of activities will keep you having fun and excitement. Take part in the pumpkin carving contest or put on your costume and try and win the grand prize. Be there from October 19 to the 20th for all festival activities with friendly townsfolk.
During the same time period from the 19th to the 20th of October, there is the Johns Creek Art Festival which may be to your liking. This is another wonderful festival where you can enjoy music from all manner of talented musicians. The live music will have you tapping your feet. The dancers will entertain you and the jazz and gospel music will intrigue and enliven. There is nothing quite like a wide variety of music to let you shed those workaday woes.
From October 25 through to November 3 you can take in the Georgia State Fair in Atlanta at the Atlanta Motor Speedway. This is a true Georgia event, with plenty of entertainment, foods, activities and shows. Does sword swallowing thrill you? When you see someone eat fire, do you cringe or do you yell for more? All these events are here for you and your family. Halloween offers more fun with a magic show and much more. There is even a Sea Lion exhibit, fun for the whole family.
Travel a bit and head for the coast and Savannah, Georgia for the Savannah Food Day Festival. Held in Daffin Park on October 26, this festival is one not to miss if you like to eat your fill of the best food around. Then move on to Kingsland, Georgia where you can experience the Kingsland’s Fall Festival. Before or after the festival you can explore the pine forests and tour the town which is on the National Register of Historic Places. The theme of the festival this year is pirates! Kids will love to get their photos taken with Pirate Cut-Outs.
You can now head home or you can make your way back to Atlanta to attend the 4th Annual Festival and BBQ Competition on November 1st in Jonesboro. If you are a BBQ master, you can enter the competition and see what kind of prize you can win.
What a fun RV trip this was – with good foods, great entertainment and lots of general fun! Come back again next year!
