Powers Festival: ... and the food is good, too
From Staff Reports
One of the most important decisions at Powers Festival is what food to eat.
That decision is not easy, so you might use this Powers maxim to assist you: just because you had four Cokes, two funnel cakes, a blooming onion, BBQ, and some ice cream, there is no reason to deny yourself that deep-fried Oreo.
Powers boasts one of the most varied assortments of food seen at a festival, and this year will be even better, say organizers.
Powers Festival started allowing commercial food vendors to participate in 2010, and will continue to bring in unique and different types of food for each event held at the Powers Pavilion property.
Among food vendors for this Labor Day weekend Powers Festival, to name a few, Hillbilly Café will be offering fish, chicken, or shrimp baskets; Redneck Gourmet of Newnan will be there selling their fried green tomatoes and chicken balls. There will also be Greek gyros, Thai cuisine, Jamaican food, noodles, baked potatoes, steak sandwiches, and others that will be offered by the many food booths at Powers Festival this year.
Not to worry, the Powers vendors representing churches, clubs and civic organizations from the Newnan area will still be there as well. Mt. Carmel United Methodist Church will offer vegetable plates with black-eyed peas, corn on the cob, potatoes, tomatoes, sautéed onions, and corn bread.
The Wi-Band Civic Club will provide an assortment of sweet treats such as fried pies, cookies, brownies, Rice Krispies treats, cakes, baked pies, and cheese straws.
The Optimist Club of Senoia will be serving breakfast this year, as well as their fried pickles, hot dogs, and deep- fried Oreos.
These are just a few of the nonprofit organizations that participate with Powers Festival.

New this year, Powers will be setting up tents with tables and chairs next to the stage area to provide shade for visitors while they eat.
