It is that time again for the delicious Taste of Douglasville! This is its 21st year and there have been alot of changes over the years. The main thing that has not change is the fact of celebrating our Douglasville Community!
There was alot of great things that families can do at the Taste of Douglasville. There is a Kids Korner where the theme is a underwater theme called ” Under the Sea, Dive into the Arts”. My wonderful Junior Master Gardeners from the University of Georgia Douglas County Extension Services had a booth again in this area this year. This time we were having the kids make their own Seed Heads with soil and decorative planting cups. The children were taught how raise their own vegetables and herbs and learn the differences from those seeds. Also in this area was the S.C.R.A.P. bin where the volunteers ran a paper craft with an underwater theme by using recycled paper and other reused art material. The Keep Douglasville Beautiful – Douglasville-Douglas County Water & Sewer Authority had booth which were hands on activities about water quality and quantity for the kids. Such a fun time with the kids!!
Another theme they had at the Taste of Douglasville was the Better Living in Our Community Market area. These were businesses offer ways to live a better life. There was the SAFE Kids/Cobb & Douglas Public Health which is the health education and information on how to implement child injury prevention programs, UGA Extension Douglas County – home food preservation exhibit and The Crazy Nutz Company – gourmet yums of roasted cinnamon almonds and pecans to name a few.
There were also different entertainment acts such as the Youth Village Americorp African Drummers which I loved to see and hear. And then there was of course the main attraction which is the food. Delicious food from the different restaurants such as ice cream from Cold Stone Creamery, Yogurt from Yogli Mogli, pizza from Fabiano’s Pizzeria and Johnny’s New York Style Pizza and so much more.
I really did kicked off the summer right with attending this great Taste of Douglaville program! See you in 2015!!
