Jasper Georgia, Marble Festival

The Marble festival was this past weekend in our North Georgia Mountains. The weather could not have been better. Well maybe it could have been a couple of degrees warmer. It was fun for all . Folks who live here and folks who visit had a geat time.

Marble Festival fun

There were rides for the young at heart and great fun for the kids.

There were tons of exhibits and food vendors. The set up was in Newton Park. So right after the morning parade folks went to see all that there was to see. And of course there were culinary delicacies

Hey it is not a festival or any public event in Georgia without boiled peanuts !!!!! So what did I buy at the festival ?

Marble Festival fun

 

I bought this great square of unique Georgia pink and white Marble. In keeping with culinary delicacies I now have my marble pasta board. After all you can take the boy out of New York but not New York out of the boy.
