Spring Place Festival 2012

Spring Place Festival, Spring Place, Georgia (2012): The Spring Place Community Festival (near Chatsworth, Georgia) will be held on Saturday, August 18th at the Old Spring Place Methodist Church in Spring Place community near Chatsworth, Georgia. It usually begins at 8 a.m., with an auction early in the day (last year, it was at 10 a.m.). The festival is in its 15th year. This is an old-fashioned community-history based, themed festival. It is small, but has lots of fun and homemade goodies, with a small-town feel ~ a reminder of the old-fashioned community fairs. The event features themed displays, a new and used book sale, bake sale, concessions, indoor flea market, raffle and auction. Proceeds benefit the Old Spring Place Methodist Church Preservation Fund of the Whitfield-Murray Historical Society. The event is co-sponsored by the Spring Place Ruritan Club. This is a great way to treasure hunt in one of the best rummage sales ever, stock up on home-baked goodies, pick up some book bargains, maybe win a raffle or auction item, and reconnect with your home-town community!
