JOHNS CREEK, Ga. Those who came to the annual Johns Creek Festival on Saturday battled some intermittent rain, but those who came Sunday found spectacular weather.

And everybody found beautiful arts and crafts, good food and lots to do Oct.19 and 20. There was a wide variety of non-stop entertainment with the accent on real entertainment.

Most of the talent was homegrown as well, with the accent on talented. Festival-goers could enjoy vendors' wares and take home something new and certainly unexpected.

One festival organizer said the festival this year was as big as last year, but the space was compacted so visitors didn't have to walk so far. Also placing the stage in the center meant visitors were never far away from all the action.
