The Good Hope Poppy Festival provides a fun fall day for residents and friends in downtown Good Hope, Georgia. The Poppy Festival honors the Poppy Lady, Moina Michael, born in Good Hope in 1869. Moina MIchael used the red corn poppy as a symbol to honor and raise funds for fallen WWI veterans. The tradition continues today to honor servicemen worldwide.
