The tenth month of 2021 is packed with festivals, football, and food. Take your pick along with tons of other things to do.
The cooler temperatures and shorter days of October provide many opportunities for fun. A big football weekend was celebrated in the Southeast with a surprising victory of Texas A&M over Alabama. University of Georgia took first place in the conference. Baseball is not about to be sidelined with the National League East playoffs in Atlanta. Braves beat those Dodgers for your chance to win the World Series!
Apple and Pumpkin festivals abound in those mountain communities. The Georgia Apple Festival held in Ellijay, GA provides access to homemade crafts, great music, and delicious apples made into fritters, breads, and fried pies. The event can be a bit crowded, so plan for plenty of time to enjoy it all.
Many festivals were canceled last year due to Covid-19. There is a pent-up enthusiasm by the planners and attendees for life to be more normal after a tough eighteen months.
