No Foolin', April is Filled with Events and Festivals

What does the month of April bring to the table? Both baseball and NASCAR seasons are underway, then there's the 2024 Total Solar Eclipse on April 8, followed by The Masters Tournament in Augusta, Georgia, on April 11- 14. 

And then there is the Spring festival season.

Yes, spring has sprung in the South. If you are looking for ways to get out and enjoy the pleasant weather (pollen aside), you are in the right place because much is happening throughout the region in April.

Treat taste buds and appetites to the Scott (Louisiana) Boudin Festival (April 5 - 7), the State Banana Pudding Festival of Georgia (April 6) in Irwinton, the Pimento Cheese Festival (April 13) in Cary, North Carolina, and the National Cornbread Festival (April 27 - 28) in South Pittsburgh, Tennessee.

Of course, don't forget about the Ponchatoula (Louisiana) Strawberry Festival (April 12 -14); and the Vidalia (Georgia) Onion Festival (April 25 - 28).

Arts festivals burst onto the scene during April as well. Check out the Druid City Arts Festival (April 5 - 6) in Tuscaloosa, Alabama; the 4 Bridges Arts Festival (April 19 -21) in Chattanooga, Tennessee; the Chesapeake (Virginia) Spring Art Festival (April 20 -21); and the Art in Bloom (April 24 -28) in Springfield, Missouri. There's also the inaugural Redfish Film Fest (April 11- 13) in Panama City, Florida, and for those who enjoy the written word, there's the Books Along the Teche Literary Festival (April 5 - 7) in New Iberia, Louisiana.
