As a community-based festival in Atlanta, the annual Elk Fest provides some good old fashioned fun and food for those looking for a change of pace from much of Atlanta's urban environment. From a greased pig competition for kids to unique, local vendors, the event was a blast for all in attendance.

The streets of downtown Atlanta were blocked off over the weekend, but not because of lack of people. Instead, the roads were filled with vendors, contests, and people participating in the 28th annual Elk Fest. This year residents, vendors, and out-of-town visitors stopped in Atlanta over the weekend to celebrate the 2012 three day festival as a community.

"The community really comes together for this. It's something you should come and experience," Beth Gross of Atlanta said. "I've been coming here for over 20 years, ever since I was a kid and we'd vacation here. It's a great community-based festival."
