labor-day-Post-image1-300x190Looking for a relaxing Labor Day weekend?  In our Labor Day blog last week, we suggested several “activities” that we thought would be awesome for Labor Day family fun. In order to be fair to all …this blog is dedicated to those who enjoy a more relaxing kind of holiday weekend. If you enjoy weekends filled with laid-back fun… nothing too exciting but just enough fun coupled with plenty of rest before going back to the daily grind, then you’ll love these Labor Day picks!  Here’s  several suggestions that will be right up your alley.  Pick one or pick them all!

The Mountain Life Team suggests…

  1. The Red Apple Barn in Ellijay, GA where you can pick your very own apples, pumpkins and even flowers. Take a tractor ride and farm tour and while you’re there – have a pic-nic lunch & then afterward enjoy a nice game of corn hole, horse shoes and just a nice relaxing time.  This is a weather permitting event so call before coming!

U-pick times are Saturday 10:30 a.m. until 5 p.m. and Sunday afternoons from 1:00 – 4 p.m. Fridays are scheduled for group tours by calling ahead.

  1. The 33rd Annual Labor Day BBQ in Blue Ridge, GA. If you’re looking for family style entertainment with ole time music, bluegrass & gospel music in a town with lots of North Georgia Charm then visit downtown Blue Ridge, GA for the 33rd annual Labor Day BBQ this Saturday, August 30th.  Bring your lawn chair & enjoy all the relaxing musical talent & some yummy food.  St. Louis Style Ribs – $12, Grilled Chicken – $10, Pork Sandwich – $9
  1. The Mountain Heritage Festival in Blairsville, GA– Nothing says relaxing like meandering through Every Labor Day weekend, the Heritage Festival celebrates history & mountain culture of Union County in downtown Blairsville, GA.  There’s arts/crafts, music, living history activities, demonstrations on quilting, spinning, basket making, gold panning, along with activities for the kids.  Check out the schedule & put this Labor Day celebration on your calendar.
