Man, I wish i was there. I did dragon boat for 5 years and it's a blast!

October is just around the corner, which means the Gainesville Chicken Festival (and a happy belly) will be here before you know it. ๐Ÿ—Serious question โ€“ is it October yet? ๐Ÿ—

The 2022 Gainesville Chicken Festival is slated for 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 22, at Lake Lanier Olympic Park (tower side), but our mouths are already watering. And, yes, your (first) plate could look like this if you attend!
