Only a handful of days remain on the calendar before the annual Granite City Fall Festival takes place this weekend.
Elbert County Chamber of Commerce President Phyllis Brooks says the annual event is a collaborative effort.
“This is a co-sponsored event; it’s not only the chamber that helps put this on. Main Street Elberton and the Granite Association help with the event”, said Brooks. “It has gotten bigger and bigger, and they usually say it takes about seven years to grown an event, and we have done that I think.”
According to Brooks, a whopping one hundred and fifteen vendors of all varieties will participate in Saturday’s fall festival.
She says a lot of the popular food vendors will be making their returns to the festival this year.
“We have a lot of our favorite food vendors coming back, such as our numerous barbeque vendors”, explained Brooks. “We will also have Carl Brooks, who provides deep fried Oreos, snickers, and some great cheese fries.”
This year’s edition of the Granite City Fall Festival will begin this Saturday at 8:00am with the Safe House Ministries Walkathon, which will begin at McIntosh Coffee.
The actual fall festival will begin accepting patrons beginning an hour later at 9:00am.
There is no cost to come out and attend the fall festival, and Brooks says there will be something for all ages during the event.
