time to shine
Dawsonville Mountain Moonshine Festival
October 24-25, 2015
Mountain Moonshine Festival | Dawsonville
Kare for Kids comes though again with a spectacular fall festival, bringing vintage cars, bootleggers and old timers to the downtown area of Dawsonville. Celebrating the city's being one of the major hubs for moonshine distribution in the 20th century, visitors roamed the streets under cloudy conditions scooping up funnel cakes and turkey legs. It's also the birthplace of NASCAR, and if only for nostalgia's sake, you can't miss a trip to Bill Elliott's famous Pool Room. The thrill of the chase takes you downtown where cars have taken over every empty space possible. Some are there to gaze out, while others sport a "For Sale" sign. Always the 4th weekend in October; never a disappointment.
All proceeds benefit Kare of Kids in Dawsonville.
