Are you looking for a fun way to celebrate Mother's Day weekend? Then I highly suggest attending the Mother's Day Powwow in Canton, GA. It is totally worth the drive (even if its a 3-4 hour drive)! This is the 25th year this event has been held. We have attended about 4 times and each time we have a blast. Watch the advertisement video here.
This year our family will be volunteering at the Save the Horses booth. Be sure to stop by to say hello!
Here are some photos from previous years we attended:
