Discover Georgia: Acworth Art Festival

Right now, it's festival season everywhere. There are all kinds of festivals, from arts to music to food. Not only in the US, but also in Nigeria. Remember when I went to Gidi Culture Fest, the Jack Daniels Lagos Grill and BBQ Festival, and the Jazz Festival in Lagos last year? FUN TIMES!!!

Across the US, there are bunches and bunches of festivals happening right now. Coachella is on in California. And in my neck of the woods, there was the Dogwood Festival last weekend that I couldn't attend. Instead I went to the Acworth Art Festival, which is small local one. It was nice to see local artists share their wares, and I wanted to buy soooooooo many things! Of course, my Snapchat followers went along with me, and I compiled the videos and photos to share here today.
















 



Check out these clocks made from melted Coke bottles!





At some point, a train passed by and of course I had to get photos and a Snapchat video... see vlog at the end of the post.



 

There were some dancers we caught, but I can't remember what traditional dance they were doing.



I loved the way their skirts flowed.

 




Festival food is always on another level. Cakes and my sister wanted to eat everything!







It was a fun little outing. I hope I can attend a few more during the year, especially a Hot Air Balloon one!

Check out my snaps from that day below. I enjoy Snapchat and I like that you can basically make movies easily.



P.S. One of my dreams is to go to a Holi Festival, which is the Indian festival of colors. I think it would be so much fun!

Have you been to any festivals?

  8. I've never really been to a festival but the one you attended looks like a lot of fun. The tiny chickens and tiny mice for sale look so funny. I won't want to have anything to do with mice. Not even a carved one. Lol

    1. I thought the chickens and mice were so cute, but odd. Hehe, I wouldn't have them at home either. But they're cute though.

    I'd love one of those tiled signs with quotes/ sayings.
    Maybe I should DIY :)

  13. Spring looks good on you, Berry. I like these artsy festivals even though going to Coachella is definitely on my bucket list. Where those actual turtle shells?
