2011 Atlanta Dogwood Festival

With Saturday's Sweetwater 420 Fest 5K race sold-out and no other races of interest for us this weekend, Susan and I decided to go to the Dogwood Festival at Piedmont Park in Atlanta today.  We drove from home to the College Park MARTA station in lieu of attempting the drive all the way and deal with the hassle of finding a place to park.

The weather was perfect when we left the Midtown MARTA station for the short walk to the park.  There was plenty of great artwork and stuff to eat and drink. 

We heard two bands play.  The first was okay instrumentally but seriously lacking vocally.  The second, Jackson County Line, I liked.

I hope you had a fun filled weekend and enjoyed the weather.
