Jasper Marble Festival

By
Real Estate Agent with AllMountainRealty.com

Today was the Jasper Georgia Marble Festival. The Apple festival in Ellijay Georgia is going on now too. Fall is a time for festivals in the mountains. We are celebrating great weather , harvests and getting ready for winter. Jasper supplies much of the countries marble and the festival is a lot of fun.

I was having an open house. But before you feel too sorry for me I was right along the parade route .Here are some pictures .photos during the parade

There are folks out waking and floats pulled by pick up trucks

Of course all the local fire departments had trucks in the parade . The kids love to hear the horns.

Of course there were local farmers and floats as well in the Parade. The whole event had a quality about it that said small town. If you saw the movie Doc Hollywood with Michael J Fox you know what I mean.Our mountain communities are great places to visit live and raise families.

My open house got a lot of foot traffic so all in all as open houses go it was good.

Charlie,

Looks like a clear day in Jasper. What the heck is a marble festival though?

Hi Charlie:

I was wondering the same as Rich...

Marble festival...is that just a way to promote marble?

I should have put my reply to Rich here. Where I livein the North Georgia Mountains is the marble capital of the US. Many of the buildings here and around the country are made from North Georgia Marble. In fact ther is even a rare type of Pink Marble . I am including a link to a blog with pictures. of a building made out of pink marble. So we celebrate here . Thewrr are carvings and exhibits. If you get there early enough you cvan even get a tour inside a mine. So some folks have apple festivals other maybe in NJ a beefsteak tomato festival (they are the best in the world). Small town America, what can I say http://activerain.com/blogsview/1084786/the-tate-house-history-in-the-pink-

I learned something about where Marble comes from this morning.

So glad you posted the comment about it.

Thanks!
