Dawsonville, Ga Nascar and moonshine history
« on: July 04, 2011, 05:00:07 PM »
The Moonshine Festival explores Dawson County's history during the prohibition era when liquor was illegal and the Great Depression of the 1930's when running moonshine through the foothills of the Northeast Georgia Mountains was a way of life. Thousands of tourists flock to the birthplace of NASCAR racing to hear about storied legends, Lloyd Seay, Roy Hall, Raymond Parks, and Gober Sosebee. These men loved the thrill of being chased through the ridges of Northeast Georgia Mountains. Bring the family and visit an old Moonshine still; listen to stories from both "Trippers" and Revenuers.

Here is a video from 2010: the opening parade:<iframe width="425" height="349" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/jDhDkNzLCho" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

Just because the paint is flat, don't make it a rat
