Despite its growth from a small arts & crafts show to the four day event that it has become today, the Yellow Daisy Festival Presented by Humana continues to be a big show with a small-town feel. The mission of re-connecting families and friends with fun, shopping, live entertainment and good food has remained constant over the past forty-eight years. Multi-generations of mothers, daughters and grandmothers meander the wooded trails together in search of the perfect item.
More than 400 artists and crafters from 33 States and two countries display their works for your appreciation and purchase. Enjoy daily live entertainment, Children’s Corner activities, fabulous festival foods and crafter demonstrations throughout the event.
Yellow Daisy Festival is free with paid parking admission. Vehicle entry to the park is $15 for a one day permit or $40 for an annual permit.

Recently traveling thru Maggie Valley, North Carolina I had the good fortune to visit The Wheels Through Time Museum, where the Founder / Curator Dale Walksler walked me through a portion of the 350 rare Motorcycle – Car Exhibits, with (English) Andy Taking over when Dale had to attend to other needs. Both of them with a vast knowledge of mechanical and history of each item on display. All except about 10 vehicles are operational with Dale occasionally starting one up. There are many vintage one of a kind items and Restoration pieces that will overwhelm you.
The museum is open from April 1 thru November 28.
Hours: 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM
OPEN: Thursday Thru Monday
CLOSED: Tuesday and Wednesday
As you enter the museum you will be greeted by the friendly hospitality of the staff who are working not only behind the counter but are attending other needs of the museum.

when it rains…they pour
Based on the story by Stephen King “Rainy Season” © (October 1993) Stephen King
Writer & Executive Producer Vanessa Wright seized the opportunity to obtain the non-exclusive rights to Stephen King’s Rainy Season through his Dollar Babies program. In order to bring this dark tale to life, she assembled a creative dream team, consisting of Director Grant McGowan, Director of Photography Mark Simon and Producers Samantha Kolesnik (Turning the Girl) & Stephanie Wyatt.
A young couple arrive in the town of Willow, ME for summer vacation. After repeated warnings from town locals to leave, they stay and learn the horrific price the town must pay for prosperity.
About Rainey Season Red Carpet Benefit
My name is Vanessa Wright and I am the Writer and Executive Producer of Rainy Season, a film adapted from the thrilling short story by Stephen King. We are raising money to produce the film which will be shot in October 2016. We have a terrifically eerie set location and an outstanding cast and crew attached to the film. Now all we need is you! By donating to this non-commercial film, you will helping a very talented group of artists bring to life one of the great stories by the Master of Horror. Per Mr. King’s agreement for the non-exclusive rights to his story, he will be seeing the final product…our film.
We need $30,000 USD to make this film. We have had a very strong start by raising $8,000 so far through indiegogo. We still need to raise the remaining $22,000. The money will be allocated to the following: Location fees, cast, crew, insurance, SFX, VFX, post production, equipment rental, props, permits, incidentals. We are thrilled to be filming in Senoia, GA at the very location where they shot the film Lawless!
Our goal is to take this film around the country to film festivals to showcase our filmmaking skills and talents.
We are proposing that 100% all funds raised ABOVE our goal of $30,000 will be donated to the International Child Art Foundation, www.icaf.org. Our promise is that if you can give to us, we will pay it forward by supporting this globally recognized children’s charity.
