With the Fall season upon us, comes the changing of the leaves, cool crisp air and our ever so popular Fall Festival. Stop by and do some early Christmas shopping with over 75 craft vendors that will line Oak Rd. in front of City Hall. The smell of festival food will fill the air to bring you flavors that will satisfy any palate. A wide variety of food will be available for purchase throughout the day.
The Snellville Senior Center will also be having an Arts and Craft Fair in conjunction with the Fall Festival from 12 - 5 p.m. that is held in the Senior Center. You won't want to miss out on some of the great homemade crafts that will be for sale. Every year, we offer live entertainment, costume contests, and All Day Activity Band is only $10.00 and includes: Bungee Jump, Rock Wall, Inflatables, Trackless Train, Hay Rides and 9-Hole Mini Golf.

Marlene Ratledge Buchanan is a southern humorist. She draws from a deep well of experience and has a keen eye for observation. Like all truly good humorists, Marlene subtlety sews wisdom with a smile. That rare gift comes through in her interview with alternate arts…
Alternate Arts: Tell us about your book, Life is Hard, Soften it With Laughter. What brought it about and what was your goal in writing it?
Buchanan: I have worked for over 34 years in high school as an art teacher and a counselor. I rarely got a phone call that was good news. I found that when you are talking to parents and kids alike, you need to break that hard shell of anger, grief, fear, whatever it is troubling the person. Humor does that. If I could get a little smile or a giggle out of the person who was so miserable, I knew I could help.
That is my goal–make life a little softer. Life is Hard. We need to do what we can to make our lives happier and easier. A giggle or two can do that for you...
