It’s Dogwood Festival Time in Atlanta

If you want to know the best time to visit the South, USA, it has to be in the Spring. 

Once every April Atlanta brings out its most beautiful self.  Dogwoods and azaleas are in full bloom, scattered among the season’s most prolific flowering trees and plants. The Dogwood Festival takes advantage of the glorious surroundings and brings thousands of visitors downtown to Atlanta’s Piedmont Park. It’s an event that makes everyone forget how much traffic they had to go through to get there.

Along with arts and crafts from around the southeast region, the Dogwood Festival brings Southern carnival foods to die for. Fried chicken, crab cakes, fried catfish, corndogs and more.

Here’s a glimpse of this year’s event. Hope you’re hungry!

    I agree – Atlanta in the spring is spectacular! When I lived there in the 70s, I lived in the Peachtree Battle area of Buckhead, and I still remember riding down those beautiful roads with “Old Atlanta” (at the time) homes and the dogwood and azaleas.

      I didn’t know that! I lived in Atlanta in 1971 in Sandy Springs. Loved it. Too much traffic now. But still beautiful in Spring. Hope to see you soon?

    Deborah looks like you are really having fun in the good old south. The Georgia congressional race in this area is really heating up and looks like a democrat will win for the first time and is running an anti Trump campaign—THERE MAY BE HOPE YET!!

    Great blog and the food does look good!!!

      Fried, fried, fried and fried… although you could choose healthy. But why bother?! Thanks, Rich.
