Fried Green Tomatoes Rally
9:00 a.m. Chick-Fil-A Dwarf House
461 N Central Ave, Hapeville, GA 30354

Get your navigator and take a leisurely drive through the backcountry roads of southern Georgia. 

Our journey will begin at the original Chick-Fil-A Dwarf House located at 461 N Central Ave, Hapeville, GA 30354.  Restrooms and food are available.  Our meeting time will be 9:00 AM with a roll out time at 9:30 a.m.  From this historic starting point we will proceed to old GA 85 and head south to the quaint town of Senoia,, the location of the town of Woodbury in the popular TV show, The Walking Dead.    In Senoia you will have time to walk around the town and visit the many shops along Main Street.

From Senoia we will continue south along historic GA 85 stopping for a photo opportunity at historic Star’s Mill Park.   Just a bit south  on GA 85 we’ll drive through another set location from the Walking Dead.  From here we’ll continue on to historic Barnesville    Barnesville was once dubbed the "Buggy Capital of the World" as the town produced about 16,000 buggies a year around the turn of the century.  As we enter Barnesville you’ll pass a number of old antebellum homes along Thomaston Street.

After visiting Barnesville we’ll continue onto Juliette where parts of the movie Fried Green Tomatoes were filmed.   Juliette is also the home of the Whistlestop Café where we’ll have a late lunch or early dinner.  Lunch will be on your own at the Whistlestop. After a relaxing meal and fellowship we’ll head home.  Juliette is close to interstate 75 so getting back to Atlanta should be easy.

This will be a pure driving event, not a timed event.  Drivers and navigators will follow a set of rallye directions and a leisurely journey along the back roads of rural Georgia.  No questions or tests; just the enjoyment of being on the open road.

Registration for this event is $5.00 per person.  Snacks and beverages will be provided at the start.
