Elijay Apple Festival

Pin It
This past weekend the ladies of our family went to North Georgia for an Apple Festival.  One of my favorite things to do in the fall is attend outdoor craft festivals.  It's a great way to get inspired...and eat yummy fried food!
 

My favorite craft of the entire weekend were these painted windows with SEC football mascots.  I already have several old windows from my grandparents house so all I need to do now is figure out how to paint a bulldog...hmmm.
 

 
For lunch we had apples dipped in caramel, cajun fries, brunswick stew and hotdogs.  It's impossible for me to go anywhere (especially a festival) without getting a hotdog....I just love them!
 
 
The cajun fries were made fresh to order.  I love how this booth cut the fries!  They used an apple corer with a wireless drill attached to cut the potatoes in seconds - genius idea!


 
Here's another craft we loved!  Hand knitted winter hats - doesn't Elizabeth look so good in it!
 

 
After the apple festival we went to an actual apple farm where you can pick your own apples.  We opted to buy the pre picked apples...no need to get dirty :)

 
The apple farm also had tons of pumpkins in every shape and color.

 
We decided to stack our pumpkins for the house so we chose 3 semi-flat pumpkins to stack on top of each other.  While we were choosing our pumpkins we noticed all of the little kids sitting on the pumpkins while their parents took their picture.  We just couldn't resist this cute photo moment...doesn't Elizabeth look cute!

 
What's your favorite fall activity?

I'm so jealous! I love that sort of thing in the fall - craft shows, greasy carnival food, getting ideas of things I could make myself... So fun!

Craft shows are a great way to get inspiration. I found so many things I liked, but told myself, "I can make that". Now I just need to get to work!
