More than 50 booths will be set up at Braselton Park for this weekend’s Antique & Gardening Festival.

The event runs from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, April 29.

Organizer Donna Cannella has been signing up vendors for months for the twice-a-year antique event.

“We want festivalgoers to come, have a great time and come back to this town and its shops as an antiques shopping destination,” Cannella said.

Wesley Lawrence’s work, including a red-headed woodpecker perched on a tree, is among the offerings at the festival.

Debbie Turner, for example, will have handmade jewelry using faucet handles and drawer pullers while Tim Cash has created wreaths from bottles. Cynthia Norman will offer cheese boards, wind chimes and other practical and creative uses for melted-down wine bottles.

For the gardening segment of the festival, just in time for spring planting season, IG Nursery and Red Dawg Nursery will participate and have herbs, annuals, perennials, plants, trees and more on hand. Artist Linda Griffiths will have watercolors for sale while Beth Barton’s Sweet Tea soaps will also be available.

Local food vendors will offer hot dogs, shaved ice, cannoli, specialty hoagies, pork, chicken, ribs, boiled peanuts, fried pork skins, funnel cakes and even fried candy bars.
