green-bean-festivalYesterday, my family had a great time at Blairsville’s, Butternut Creek Festival.  The rain held out and we enjoyed all of the fabulous artists, music and food at beautiful Meeks Park.  This coming Saturday, July 27th there is more excitement as Union County will celebrate the third annual Green Bean Festival!  (Remember I told you we celebrate everything in the mountains!)

What is the purpose of the Green Bean Festival you ask…Well, besides getting together for a great time,  The Green Bean Festival celebrates the nutrient rich heritage between green beans and the people of North Georgia. The Green Bean Festival hopes to establish a larger market for locally grown varieties, to promote sustainable “green” living.

The festivities will begin on Friday night as downtown Blairsville will host a fun square dancing contest to kick off the festival.  Saturday, there is a 5k race that begins at 8 am. (you need to register on their website)  On the agenda for that day include kids activities, arts and crafts, tons of vendors, a canning contest, a bike race, a green bean pizza eating contest, beauty pageant and a block party!!!

So as they say, “Have you even Bean to Blairsville?“, if you haven’t this would be a great weekend to go!  Call us ahead at the Mountain Life Team to show you some beautiful homes in the area.  After you visit, I know you will wish you had your own place in this amazing community!  We can help!!!
