This could easily be placed in the 'Off the Beaten Path' section since it takes place in the tiny, rural town of Gay, Georgia, about 50 miles S. of Atlanta
It is held two weekends a year, the first weekend of May and October. Admission is $5 adults, $3 children 4-12.
This arts and crafts fair highlights rural Southern living at the turn of the last century.
There are stands selling antiques, all kinds of handicrafts, a variety of food. Local groups ranging from grade-schoolers up to the 'Sassy Seniors' provide entertainment dancing and singing. It's a very enjoyable way to spend a whole day.
