This past weekend, the four of us went to the Brookhaven Cherry Blossom Festival in Atlanta. I had previously talked about our excitement to attend, and it was a fun-filled day that everyone loved – especially our boys! We attended the festival as part of a campaign with The Network Niche & Discover Dekalb, but all opinions are our own!
There was so much to do at the Brookhaven Cherry Blossom Festival, and everyone had a blast. We arrived just before 11am, and there was a crowd but it wasn’t too bad. The festival got busier as the afternoon wore on. Still, the lines weren’t very long and there was so much that we weren’t just standing around or anything like that!
My boys, of course, wanted to stay in the Children’s Village the entire time we were at the festival. This is where the best action was for them. The FOUR! bounce houses were calling my kiddos’ names the moment we arrived. It was great fun, and they took a long nap on the way home. Double win!
Along with the bounce houses, there were many booths set up in the Children’s Village to learn more about local businesses. Dawson got his first lessons in tennis, and met Spiderman! They also got free odds and ends as we met and learned more about what Brookhaven has to offer.
On our way to the Children’s Village, we walked through the Classic Car Show. My boys have never seen such a variety of antique cars. They were definitely intrigued by the vehicles from the 1930’s. Sawyer was like, “Could you imagine driving one of these?!”
We also took a moment to listen to the live music that was at the Brookhaven Cherry Blossom Festival. There was an assortment of musical acts all throughout the day, and they were all a pleasure to hear. I like that the stage was located far enough away from the vendors and booths, so it wasn’t disrupting the conversations had with these people while we were there.
Speaking of vendors, there was a large variety of food trucks, artists, authors, and more at the festival! We had fun shopping through all of the local talent. And when we saw the pickle food truck, that was the end. We had to see what they offered.
Since it was a warm day, there were lots of sweet treats on hand to cool you off. The boys had to grab some frozen strawberry lemonade after all those bounce house jumping.
When it was time to leave, we walked to the shuttle and made it back to our car. Parking was free, and it was great to have a shuttle to take us right back to the parking lot we used. On the way, both boys asked if we can return to the Brookhaven Cherry Blossom Festival next year. We definitely will!
