This Weekend in Georgia

Now, we know you'll be in front of your TV to see the premiere of Georgia Traveler's all NEW "Fall Colors Tour of Georgia" this Friday at 9 PM and Saturday at 7 PM, but what are you going to do with the rest of your weekend? Well, here are a few ideas:

7th Annual Southeastern Cowboy Festival and Symposium
at the Booth Western Art Museum in Cartersville
October 22-25, 2009
Grab your cowboy hat, boots and gear and join our friends at the Booth Western Art Museum for a four-day celebration of the West with featured artist Buck McCain, featured entertainer Baxter Black, art history lectures, children’s activities, pioneer demonstrations, re-enactments of historic Western gunfights, Native American dancing, cowboy church, and much more. For more info about the festival, visit the Booth Museum website. To check out the Georgia Traveler segment on the Booth Museum, click here.

"Wails to Trails" Haunted Hike
at Tallulah Gorge State Park Friday, October 23 from 7-9 PM
(or rain date Saturday, October 24)
Looking for a delightfully spooky way to meet some of the colorful characters and events of the Tallulah Falls railway's past- then join in the fun! This is a .75 mile walk along the existing bed of the Tallulah Falls Railway. Reservations are required. Rain date will be Saturday, October 24, 2009. $2 children 12 and under -$3 adult plus $5 parking. Call 706-754-7981 or visit the website for details.

Deep Roots Festival 2009

in Historic Downtown Milledgeville
Saturday, October 24
We made some great friends in Milledgeville earlier this year while shooting a segment for our upcoming "Book Tour of Georgia". Flannery O'Connor is a native of Milledgeville and we had a fantastic time getting to know the folks in her hometown. They told us about this great festival, formerly the Sweetwater Festival, now called "Deep Roots". Organizers tell us that there will be a barbeque cook-off, arts and crafts, musical performances, a kids zone and a car show. Sounds like something for everyone! Gates open at 10 AM. Check out the website for more details.

And those are just a few of the ideas you can find at the Explore Georgia website operated by our production partners at the Georgia Department of Economic Development. And speaking of production, don't forget that the 3rd Season of Georgia Traveler premieres this weekend- in HIGH DEFINITION! Tune in Friday, October 23 at 9 PM and Saturday, October 24 at 7 PM.
