Today was the Jasper Georgia Marble Festival. The Apple festival in Ellijay Georgia is going on now too. Fall is a time for festivals in the mountains. We are celebrating great weather , harvests and getting ready for winter. Jasper supplies much of the countries marble and the festival is a lot of fun.
I was having an open house. But before you feel too sorry for me I was right along the parade route .Here are some pictures .
There are folks out waking and floats pulled by pick up trucks
Of course all the local fire departments had trucks in the parade . The kids love to hear the horns.
Of course there were local farmers and floats as well in the Parade. The whole event had a quality about it that said small town. If you saw the movie Doc Hollywood with Michael J Fox you know what I mean.Our mountain communities are great places to visit live and raise families.
My open house got a lot of foot traffic so all in all as open houses go it was good.
