Good Day Atlanta Viewer Information April 13, 2016

- Annual Mountain Festival Celebrates Southern Appalachian Culture:  It's a celebration of Southern Appalachian music, art, and folklore -- and it happens on one of North Georgia's most picturesque town squares.  Bear On The Square Mountain Festival is taking place this weekend in Dahlonega, and it's celebrating a major milestone.  The 20th annual festival kicks off Friday, April 15, with an evening live and silent country auction including dinner and music.  Then, the free admission festival cranks into high gear on Saturday and Sunday, with Main Stage music performances, a juried Artists Marketplace, storytelling, and dancing.  The focus, of course, is on tradition Southern Appalachian culture, which means plenty of bluegrass music and hand-made art.  By the way, the festival's name comes from a real event, which involves...a bear on the square.  Of course, to get the full story, you have to visit the festival!  Good Day Atlanta's Paul Milliken spent the morning in Dahlonega, getting a preview of this year's big event!
