Trail Fest 2013 in Dahlonega, Georgia, took place March 22nd through the 24th in beautiful downtown Dahlonega.
The festivities could not have been more perfect.
Sure, it would've been nice if it didn't rain and if it weren't so cold. More people would've been nice too, but it was fun anyway. All the hardcore regulars were there.
There was dancing, food and drink, lots of fiddlers, helpful vendors, authors, informative displays and food.
We're in debt to all the folks who spent months behind the scenes preparing for this annual event. No doubt next year's Dahlonega Trail Fest will be even perfecter.
Maybe a picture or two will inspire you join us in 2014.
