Charlie Ragonesi Big Canoe Realestate's Blog: Bear On the Square

Bear On the Square

The Bear on the Square Festival in Dahlonga Georgia is a great kick off to the Spring / Summer season in our North Georgia Mountains. The festival is a free event featuring musicians roam all over our Mountains

Dahlonega festival

Here is just one of the many groups that camped out including a clogging platform for those who were so inclined. Below you can see just one of the streets filled with folks and musicians playing

Festiva in our mountains

The whole square was full for the whole weekend. The Gold Museum is in the photo below. It sits ion the center of the square. Dahlonega was the site of the first gold rush in the country in the 1820's. People still pan today .

So after all that walking around and listening to music, What does one eat to capture the Mountain Spirit?

The menu

While I cannot bring you the flavor of the food in this post,  I can bring you some of the sounds. So enjoy the music and you will get a good feel for this great festival. The North Georgia Mountains are a wonderful place to live and play. Let the folks at All Mountain Realty be your guides

I haven't clogged in...well...never. I love these local community events. There is always something for everyone. Enjoy Charlie.

Chocolate covered bacon?!  Did you try this?  If so, I am intersted to know what you thought about this.  As if chocolate or bacon weren't bad enough on their own!  LOL!

Charlie: You had me "at bear on the square".  Dahlonega is such an aweseom mountain town, old stomping grounds for me.  Now I want pralines but chocolate covered bacon, hmmm.  I guess it's true, you can put chocolate on anything and it will be good.  At least with bacon, you get both the sweet and the salty together which we all love.
