Jasper Marble Festival

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 .photos during the parade

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.
