Take a shine to Dawsonville
Festival pays homage to white lightnin, fast cars
Adelynn Odum of Forsyth County gets her face painted by Deborah Phillips during last year’s Mountain Moonshine Festival.
Dawsonville’s unique history comes alive this weekend with the 45th annual Mountain Moonshine Festival. The festivities begin Friday morning with the annual “Moonshine Run” that begins at the Georgia Racing Hall of Fame. Later that night, the events continue with the Georgia Racing Hall of Fame’s induction ceremony, followed by a classic car cruise-in and live band at the Dawsonville Municipal Complex.
