Celebrating Green Tomatoes

Folks flocked to Juliette this weekend, all to celebrate a fruit that helped make the town famous.

The 12th Annual Green Tomato Festival was in full swing.

McCrackin Street was filled with vendors selling things from arts and crafts to snacks.

Stores and restaurants also opened their doors to visitors.

People came out to enjoy the shopping, but more importantly many say they came to grab some of those renowned fried green tomatoes.

Monica Daniel, from Forsyth said, "I like to come out and support the locals and it's a lot of fun. It's got a lot of cool stuff here."

With all the food and fun, some say it's tough to peg the best part about the celebration.

"Whether it's the venders who have such a variety of greatly crafted items or if it's the food you can get at the Whistle Stop Cafe or if it's the honey you can get down the street, it's an amazing opportunity to for people just to celebrate their community," said Karen Manus-Pennings, with the Convention Visitors Bureau.

The festival takes place the fourth weekend of October each year.
