I love Fall Festival time of year! There is a festival almost every weekend or craft show almost every weekend. Last week was the annual Fall Festival at the John C. Campbell Folk School, it is a wonderful festival. This year the weather was absolutely beautiful, which lead to extremely large crowds. We arrived shortly after 10:00, the festival opened at 10:00 and parking was already at a premium. This is one of my favorite festivals, it supports the folk school and is in a beautiful setting. Most of the vendors are people who have either taken classes a the school or are instructors. The arts and crafts are definitely worth the money. The only thing I make a point of buying every year is yarn. I love alpaca yarn and at the festival I get to meet the alpaca's and pet them. This year I found a gorgeous purple yarn that I plan on using for a scarf.
