Our Story …
The Sandy Springs area is a vibrant, upscale, family friendly community just north of Buckhead and Atlanta. Located in one of the wealthiest zip codes in Fulton County, Artsapalooza is one of the premiere art festival attractions in the affluent Sandy Springs area and draws a large purchasing crowd each year.
Our Goal …
The Sandy Springs Artsapalooza is a two-day outdoor Atlanta event with an emphasis on the visual arts and handcraft. Located in the heart of Sandy Springs in Fulton County, we set out with many different goals in mind:
- Give back to the community through art back yard; artists, so they have a show they can depend on in their own
- Create a venue that emphasizes local and Georgian
- Bring a festival to the folks in the northern part of Fulton county;
- Create a festival for Artists by Artists, letting the artist have a voice in the creation and operations of the festival
- Create a show unlike any other in the City of Sandy Springs, bringing together outstanding local, regional and national artists
In addition to our beautiful selection of artwork, the festival will also include and amazing lineup of gourmet food trucks, live acoustic music, children's activities, as well as free parking and free admission.

International Women's Day (March 8) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity.
International Women's Day (IWD) has occurred for well over a century, with the first IWD gathering in 1911 supported by over a million people in Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland. Prior to this the Socialist Party of America, United Kingdom's Suffragists and Suffragettes, and further groups campaigned for women's equality.
Today, IWD belongs to all groups collectively everywhere.
IWD is not country, group or organization specific.
Make IWD your day – everyday.

Martin Luther King, Jr. (January 15, 1929 – April 4, 1968)
Monday is Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, honoring the memory of the late civil rights leader who would have turned 87 this past Friday
Martin Luther King, Jr. was an American Baptist minister, activist, humanitarian, and leader in the African-American Civil Rights Movement. He is best known for his role in the advancement of civil rights using nonviolent civil disobedience based on his Christian beliefs.
King became a civil rights activist early in his career. He led the 1955 Montgomery Bus Boycott and helped found the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC) in 1957, serving as its first president. With the SCLC, King led an unsuccessful 1962 struggle against segregation in Albany, Georgia (the Albany Movement), and helped organize the 1963 nonviolent protests in Birmingham, Alabama. King also helped to organize the 1963 March on Washington, where he delivered his famous "I Have a Dream" speech. There, he established his reputation as one of the greatest orators in American history.
On October 14, 1964, King received the Nobel Peace Prize for combating racial inequality through nonviolence. In 1965, he helped to organize the Selma to Montgomery marches, and the following year he and SCLC took the movement north to Chicago to work on segregated housing. In the final years of his life, King expanded his focus to include poverty and speak against the Vietnam War, alienating many of his liberal allies with a 1967 speech titled "Beyond Vietnam".
In 1968, King was planning a national occupation of Washington, D.C., to be called the Poor People's Campaign, when he was assassinated on April 4 in Memphis, Tennessee. His death was followed by riots in many U.S. cities.
King was posthumously awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom and the Congressional Gold Medal. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day was established as a holiday in numerous cities and states beginning in 1971, and as a U.S. federal holiday in 1986. Hundreds of streets in the U.S. have been renamed in his honor, and a county in Washington State was also renamed for him. The Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., was dedicated in 2011.

Unclogging a Blocked Toilet Trap Without a Plunger
If you find yourself in a predicament to have a blocked toilet and no plunger nearby here’s what you need to know. Try this simple solution to unclog your toilet with dish soap, a container of hot water, a little patience and that’s it.
Stage one: Pour dishwashing soap into the toilet. Since the dish soap density (– 1.06) is great than water it will sink to the bottom of the toilet bowl.
Stage 2: Allow 15+ minutes for the soap to be absorbed into the blockage acting as a pipe lubricant.
Stage 3: Pour a container of really hot water into the toilet bowl making its way through the trap pushing the blockage out.
Stage 4: Flush the toilet and watch as the obstruction vanishes!
