American Indians dance to traditional music during the annual festival at Ocmulgee National Monument.
This morning, follow the crowds to Willow on Fifth. This Southern buffet, a sister restaurant to the famous Blue Willow in Social Circle, Georgia, offers a tasty selection of fried chicken, meat loaf, pork chops, and fresh veggies ($8.95-$12.95).
If you have time before heading out of town, pay a visit to another gorgeous Macon establishment, the 1859 Hay House. Although not connected to any local musician, this lovely Italian Renaissance Revival home, nicknamed Palace of the South, may motivate you to write your own song of the beauties of a Macon weekend.
