Chiaha Harvest Fair I attended the Chiaha Harvest Fair at Ridgeferry Park in Rome, Georgia. The admissions cost was $5 for adults and $4 for students and seniors. Children under 12 got free admission. They did not allow pets at this festival. This was the 50 year anniversary of the fair. This fair is well known for its many talented artists and craftsmen that come and display their work. Also, it has some great food and entertainment. The goal of the festival is to raise money to support local art efforts throughout the year. This fair was started in 1964. It began as a small backyard thing then it progressed to an old fire station until it finally grew into the Ridgeferry Park venue. Chiaha has grown tremendously in the number and quality of exhibitors, musicians, food vendors, and activities for children. There is a section of Chiaha that is dedicated for the children. Elementary children get in free. They have a tent set up and it is called the Creat-a-ha-tent. This tent has free or low cost art projects for kids. Some of the projects are sponsored by local businesses. The kids get to do things such as paint or work with pottery. Also, they have a student art tent. This is where they display art work from local children. There are many different food vendors that are at Chiaha. I noticed that they had fudge, caramel apples, cookies, hotdogs, hamburgers, cotton candy, fried foods, kettle popcorn, coffee, BBQ, roasted corn, and many more. I noticed that there were a couple of local restaurants that were represented at Chiaha. I saw Harvest Moon and Great Harvest Bread. I really enjoyed the kettle corn. I think that was my favorite. I enjoyed the entertainment that was at Chiaha. I did not realize they would have music and shows on the stage. I was there on Sunday and I got to see 2 different entertainers. First, I saw Julie
