Georgia's Fall Festivals

Fall is a special time in north Georgia, so last year we took our camera in hand and visited some of the most popular events. Prater's Mill, The Georgia Apple Festival, Gold Rush Days are great places for any weekend. Add Helen's Oktoberfest for a party and top it off with a special pre-Christmas pilgrimage in Marietta and you will find out what we are all about.
