Gold Rush Days in Dahlonega

Weather was sunny for Gold Rush Days in Dahlonega, Georgia this year – no mist and drizzle. The parade and wrist-wrestling events proved popular with the crowds, and the cloggers earned a great deal of applause.

The hog-calling contest went particularly well. The winner, a young lad, called an entire herd into the main square. Then before they could cause any trouble, the Gooch family set about turning them into ham and pork chops.

A good time was had by all (except perhaps the pigs).
