Another Family Festival

As I told you before, my family happens to be in charge of almost every festival in Middle Georgia! LOL - This one happens to be my mom's thing.She is the president of the Middle Georgia Art Association, and this weekend is the Mulberry Street Festival - a fund raiser for MGAA. Sooo...

I headed out early this morning. I by passed the Cherry Blossom Festival and Headed straight to the Mulberry Festival

I have my handy dandy Mulberry Street Volunteer staff shirt on - and I head to downtown Macon. (PS - Don't get this confused with the Second Saturday Festival my sister is in charge of each Sat in Gray, OR the Cherry Blossom Festival I featured last Saturday. I TOLD you our fair city loves their festivals!

My friend Lisa met up with me at my church's parking lot. We decided to walk the 6 or 7 blocks down to the festival. Any excuse to get our exercise. Also - yes, I talked her into volunteering!

As we were wandering the rows of amazing hand crafted items, we were blown away by the beautiful wood carved furniture.

These pieces were absolutely phenomenal!

I got a little side tracked by the delicious dips!

And these hilarious "beachy" signs

Just another good staple at any southern festival

As well as these!

We checked in with the Body Bling ladies from Perry, Georgia. They invited us to "model" their handywork as we walked around. I am a sucker for face paint, so I happily obliged!

Lisa's face turned out nice also!

It's a flying pig made out of recycled parts!

Look who I ran into - Andy & Kristine! I've known these guys about 19 years!

Lisa and I stopped by Acapulco -a fabulous latino restaurant on the corner of Cherry Street & Third. We needed a little hydration!

I caught Lisa just staring out the window.. thought the pic came out pretty good!

After lunch, we strolled along 3rd Street park and found the fountain had been turned pink for the Cherry Blossom Festival!

More cherry blossoms

I love that I have a friend that is not afraid to pose for pics. LOL

I wanted this piece. These are actually items that turn into water fountains!

Got to love fried food at festivals..

This was fascinating. Basically the artist takes acrylic paint, puts it on the fish, the transfer to paper. Wild!

Ornaments made from recycled soda cans

Not the most flattering pic - but it was really hot - My dad is sweltering on the left, mom in the middle and silly goose Glennean on the right. Middle Georgia Arts Association

I warned you about Macon - EVERYTHING is pepto pink

Strolling down 3rd Street

Cherry Blossoms painted on the roads

Taking a walk down Cherry Street

See? The road is even painted pink..

If you have never had a Nuway hotdog - then you have not truly lived.

Macon City Auditorium. I actually had my Jr/Sr prom here... ;-)

After a long hot day - we were finished! Plus I think I am a little pink!
