It is a beautiful spring day here in Gilmer County. Karla and BKP take Karla’s Korner on the road today. This weekend, May 6th and 7th, is the Georgia Apple Blossom Festival. Today’s segment is on location at the Gilmer County Chamber of Commerce where the festival will be held. This festival is FREE admission, pet friendly, will have kids activities, local crafts, and the business expo. Karla tells us all about the festival, what to expect when you arrive, and other fun events going on in the local area this weekend.

Springtime in Ellijay means a lot of great upcoming events to get outside and enjoy! Dalton State College is hosting an art show for all local students from today until May 5th. There will be a reception tonight to kick off the art show. There are also ribbon cuttings this week at Premier Pools and Spas and Abby’s Ice Cream and Fro Yo. This weekend is Earth Day and it is supposed to be a beautiful weekend. In honor of Earth Day there will be a couple “clean up” events around town one will be at Harrison Park and the other will start at River Pavilion.
The next big Gilmer County event that we are looking forward to is the Apple Blossom Festival on May 6th and 7th. This is a great festival showcasing local craft vendors, food vendors and businesses. Come out, bring your pups, and meet the FYN team. We will have a “pup-cam” and treats for all our furry friends as well. Also in today’s segment with Karla hear a little confession from BKP about “his spot” at the Apple Blossom Festival.

What a great weekend it was at the Apple Blossom Festival! Karla, Paige and all of the Gilmer Chamber board members made that event such a huge success. Karla tells BKP about some great things to do with Mom on this Mother’s Day weekend. Forest Hills is doing brunch, Chateau Meichtry & Cartecay Vineyards are having Mother’s Day specials and bands playing Saturday and Sunday. Also, Cartecay River Clean Up is Saturday, May 13th if you want to get out and give back to Mother Earth. They will end the clean up day with live music and games. The General Store at Eagle Mountain will be hosting Pick N’ On the Porch on Saturday night as well. So many great things to get into with mom on her special weekend. Karla finishes up by telling us that Taste of Ellijay is May 25th! Mark your calendars because if you like to eat you do not want to miss this!
