Fall is in full swing and The Bell Team is gearing up for the season. If you want to get the most out of these chilly fall months, read on to learn more about local events that can keep you and yours happy and active while the weather starts to cool down.
First up is Braselton’s monthly farmers market. The market, open every third Friday of the month from 4-6 pm on Davis Street downtown, is your chance to stock up on delicious locally-grown produce, grains, and fruits. This isn’t just a grocery trip! It’s a chance to meet your neighbors and share in the harvest. Buy local! Be local! Mingle with your fellow Braseltonians and know that you’re doing your part to keep Braselton’s money in Braselton.
You can find more info, including the vendor list and market updates, on Facebook.
November 17 brings us Braselton’s annual parade, holiday marketplace, food trucks, and lighting of the tree (a tradition since the 1920s). The day will kick off with a parade marching through historic downtown starting at 10:30 am. But the party rages on! This year’s theme is “Reindeer Games.” Stop by any time between 10 am and 7 pm to partake in the festivities downtown! The kiddos can visit Santa while parents will enjoy the marketplace surrounding the Town Green. Pictures are encouraged.
Nostalgic for summer? The Braselton Library has your fix. They’re screening Adam Sandler and Genddy Tartakovsky's Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation on November 9 at 6:30 pm. HT3: SV is a unique take on Universal’s classic slate of monsters, and is a truly family experience as it is colorful and fast-paced enough for even the most hyperactive viewer, the over-the-top silliness and playful nods will keep the adults entertained as well. Need more info? They've got a Facebook, too!
PS: The library is always hosting awesome events— from virtual reality demonstrations to story time for the toddlers to coding for the techies. Check in on them regularly to find out how to spend some quality educational time with your little ones (or invest some time in yourself).
Maybe you want to ditch the kids altogether? Chateau Elan Winery is where it’s at. On November 17, they’ll be hosting Grape to Glass. Participants will design their own personal wine glass (while nibbling on a complementary cheese plate and sipping on their own cup… you know… to get the creative juices flowing). The class is open to all skill levels. Enjoy the joy of creation during this 90-minute class under the instruction of Eye Candy Art Studios. $65. Check their website for registration info.
Chateau Elan is also hosting a cooking class on November 24—the Saturday after Thanksgiving. Take a break from the leftover turkey and try your hand at crafting a lovely ricotta and tomato bruschetta with pancetta, salmon with garlic butter, and sweet potato bread pudding with vanilla cream sauce. 21 and over please! Classes are 2-3 hours long, so make sure you’ve got the time (and the room in your stomach) for such an endeavor. $125/person. Check their website or call (678) 425-0900 ext. 41 to schedule a reservation!
So there you go! Weekend by weekend, Braselton has more than enough to offer! And, as always, The Bell Team is your super-local, community-conscious answer to all of your real estate questions. Don’t hesitate to call or email should you want to get in touch.
