Fright Nights at the Fairgrounds
By Blue Ridge Kiwanis Club (OTHER EVENTS)
6 DATES THROUGH OCT 28, 2017

ABOUT
Last year, Old Man Jones and his century old secrets were finally revealed. Now we can't stop him. We've finally come clean - our fairgrounds have a suspicious and malign history that is difficult to explain. Old Man Jones owned most of this section of Blue Ridge in the late 1800's, and suffered more personal tragedy than many realized. In keeping with the fashion of the day, these "happenings" were not public knowledge and were never published in local papers. But now, based on what we've recently experienced on the old Jones homesite, we are facing some of his history first hand, and, quite frankly, our reality is being challenged. Our second season is here, and Old Man Jones is showing off.

Come and Experience Fright Nights at the Fairgrounds - a haunted house in downtown Blue Ridge!

Dog friendly restaurants in Blue Ridge GA

Dog friendly restaurants in Blue Ridge GA

July 17, 2017

Blue Ridge has a lot of great restaurants that will please even the most discriminating palate! The only thing that makes that better is that several are very dog friendly!

Visiting downtown Blue Ridge with your dog can be fun for you both. But what about when it’s time for lunch or dinner? Which restaurants will welcome your four-legged family member?

Thankfully, websites like bringfido.com provide such info for dog owners. On their site, they list the following Blue Ridge restaurants as dog-friendly: Harvest on Main, Treo, Masseria, Fightingtown Tavern, and Blue Ridge Brewery

All three of these restaurants have outdoor tables where dogs are welcome. But is your dog ready for dining out?

Dog expert Josh Weiss-Roessler offers this advice when taking your dog to a restaurant:

· Feed your pooch before you arrive at the restaurant. A full tummy will keep your dog from begging for food.

· Bring along a water bowl and chew toys to distract Fido. Keeping your dog occupied will make the meal more pleasant for everyone.

· Head to the park first. Tire your dog with play before heading to the restaurant. She’ll be more likely to nap while you eat.

· Remember safety. No matter how well-behaved your dog, keep them on a leash to protect them from unpredictable reactions to noises or incidents.

North Georgia Mountain Biking

North Georgia Mountain Biking

July 11, 2017

If an ideal weekend for you includes securing your bike to your vehicle top and exploring a new trail, then Blue Ridge, GA may very well be your personal paradise.
 
With so many routes and varying difficulties, you'll find the perfect trail for an evening ride or a challenging all-day trek.  You'll have your pick of scenery, too--from biking along the rushing Ocoee River white water, to navigating laurel-lined forest floors. 
 
To help you choose a route, you can consult the Chamber of Commerce's map of outdoor biking routes.  On this guide, route names are color-coded to indicate their difficulty category.  Plus, you'll find a brief description of the trails themselves.

While this map will help you access these routes, you'll still need to consult guide books, the National Forest Service (for potential road closure info), and local experts before you hit the trails.
