General Butler State Resort Park in Carrollton is gearing up for the annual Goldenrod Gala, a juried arts and crafts festival that includes music, entertainers and food. Held on the park grounds on Saturday, August 30 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., the gala committee is seeking applications from artisans interested in participating in the event.
This year stands to be a repeat of last year’s successful event, which drew several thousand people who came to see musical performances, a car and tractor show, and craft demonstrations.
