Since Baby and I had such a fun mommy/daughter date strolling Arts on the Creek last weekend, we decided to do it again. This time we asked some friends to join us, and Saturday before lunch we headed out to the Yellow Daisy Festival at Stone Mountain.
The festival is set up within the event meadow of the park with more than 400 artists and crafters gather to show and sell their beautiful work. And if perusing art isn’t enough for you, there is live entertainment, Children’s Corner activities, clogging and even crafter demonstrations throughout the event.
As with any festival there is the usual fair fare. There are so many vendors participating here that there is a huge area set up as a food court complete with tables and chairs under a large tent to escape the blazing Georgia sun. At alternate stands you can find BBQ, Burgers, cheese steaks, quesadillas, Funnel Cakes, Roasted Corn and Corn Dogs.
Doesn’t this turkey leg look delicious?
I have to admit it wasn’t mine. The yummy looking leg belonged to a sweet young woman sharing our table, and yes I did ask to take a picture of her turkey leg before she dug into it, since my pork BBQ nachos or Baby’s corn dog were no longer available to be photographed.
Under the canopy of trees we wandered around shaded trails oohing and ahing over the art, and made our way over to the Children’s area for the routine face/arm painting. The girls loved their colorful wearable art.
We all had a long and exhausting but absolutely wonderful day, and are definitely planning to attend again next year. Good news is the dates are already scheduled for next year’s festival. We can mark our calendar now for Thursday, September 6 through Sunday, September 9, 2012. You should do the same! It’s a festival worth attending.

What’s your favorite festival to attend with (or without) your children?
