37th Annual Vidalia Onion Festival
- What it is: a celebration of the harvest of Georgia’s official state vegetable, the Vidalia sweet onion, featuring days of cooking, dancing, arts and crafting, and jokes about crying
- Where you’ve heard about it: on the Food Network, and on NBCNews.com’s list of “5 Don’t-Miss Festivals”
- Musical act that will have people dancing in the street on Friday night: The Temptations Review with Dennis Edwards
- Dennis Edwards is: one of the lead singers of the famous Motown act
- Other Friday night act who might caramelize onions within earshot: Alabama blues rocker Chris Simmons
- Saturday night acts adding even more flavor to the air: Uncle Kracker, Parmalee, and Old Dominion
- Uncle Kracker is: the laid-back performer who mixes rap-rock and pop-country on songs including “Follow Me” and “Smile”; heir to the saltine fortune
- Evidence that Parmalee loves Carolina: just listen to their chart-topping single “Carolina,” from the album Feels Like Carolina
