Another busy weekend is ahead in Rome and Floyd County with the slate of events to include the Chiaha Harvest Fair and Schnauzerfest in Rome and the Ghost Tours in Cave Spring.
The Chiaha Harvest Fair will be held in a new location this year – the Coosa Valley Fairgrounds. Event dates/times are Saturday and Sunday from 10 am to 5 pm both days. Attendees will enjoy arts and crafts, live music, hot apple cider, and more. Monica Sheppard, event co-chair, says that Chiaha is a great place to purchase locally-crafted gifts for Christmas.
Admission to Chiaha will be $5 for adults, $4 for seniors, $1 for kids ages two thru 12, and free to kids under two. For event details and updates, visit www.chiaha.org and ‘like’ Chiaha Harvest Fair on Facebook. A coupon may be downloaded from the website via which kids may be admitted to the event for free with a paying adult.
The mission of the Chiaha Guild of Arts and Crafts is to support the arts and art education in Rome and Floyd County.
Sheppard enthuses that dogs will again be allowed at the Chiaha Harvest Fair this year.
And speaking of dogs…
