JULIETTE, Ga. — The Fried Green Tomatoes Festival is making it's way back to Juliette after a two year hiatus.
To celebrate the iconic 1991 movie of the same name, Juliette has been putting on this festival for 17 years.
"Juliette is a landmark. The town dates back to the 1800s and it had a lot of ups and down. About 31-32 years ago to movie was filmed there and it's been a live little town ever since. We're very proud of it," Festival chairman Tommy Moon said.
The event will have over 50 vendors with food, as well as arts and crafts.
Visitors can stop by the local boutiques, browse shops and of course, have a meal at the famous Whistle Stop Café.
Moon says during the event they hope to have a few local bands set the tone with music on the Opry House porch.
There will also be kids rides and more fun for the whole family.
Moon also says because the event is near the train tracks, train enthusiast will get a kick of the machines honking as they pas through town.
He says they are excited to have the festival back in Juliette.
"We've had a lot of people work hard on this festival and we're looking forward to having all of our visitors come back to it. So, we hope you can come and we appreciate every last one of you."
The festival will be going on all day Saturday and Sunday in Juliette.
