The Toccoa community comes together for an annual Spring tradition.

The annual Poke Sallit Festival took place this past Saturday at Emory Johnson Park in Toccoa.

Seth Gholston’s father, Larry, helps to organize the festival.

Seth said the festival included entertainment, activities, and of course, Poke Sallit.

“The Poke Sallit festival is just a festival for the community,” said Seth Gholston. “The Poke Sallit that is actually just a salad that grows naturally in the wild that older people used to eat regularly. My dad just started cultivating it, bringing it, and cooking it to put together a fun festival for the community.”

This was the 24th annual Poke Sallit festival in Toccoa and it also included a blood drive, blood pressure screenings, and a parade late Saturday afternoon.
