Fall has definitely come to Gwinnett County, and what better season for a festival? Two Gwinnett towns are hosting fall-based festivals this weekend, and a lot more activities are planned around the county.
The Snellville Fall Festival will take place from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 20. The festival, in its third year, will feature an arts & crafts sale, contests, kids' activites, and music.
Contests include a cake and pie bake-off, a "best scarecrow" contest and a costume contest. More than 80 arts and crafts vendors are expected to participate.
Patch will be at the Snellville festival all day. Come see us!
Loganville is celebrating its Fourth Annual Autumn Heritage Festival from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday. Among highlights planned for the day are a booth showing off a new town green that Loganville Mayor Ray Nunley says will become a new focal point for the city.
Another attraction is the Touch a Truck Display to raise funds for Walton County’s Special Olympics. On display, to be “touched” for $1, are police, service and fire trucks as well as an antique car, a motorcycle and a tractor.
Tens of thousands of people are expected in Suwanee this weekend for the annual Korean Festival, billed as the largest in the Southeast. Festival hours are noon-8 p.m. on Saturday and noon-6 p.m. on Sunday at Town Center Park.
