On this Memorial Day Weekend, there's lots to do and see in Georgia!
Remember the "Gay '90s"? No, not the 1990s, but what our great-grandparents called the '90s! The Gay '90s are alive and well in Ringgold this weekend at the 1890s Day Jamboree! This Friday and Saturday, May 22 and 23, come on out to Ringgold and have the most fun anybody's had in over a century. There'll be an old-time fiddle contest, Gospel singing, 1890s cars, fireworks, and even a beauty pageant. For more information visit the 1890s Day Jamboree website.
If you'll be in the Helen area this weekend, why not stop by Unicoi State Park for their Memorial Day Blast! Join in on relay races, field day activities, a campfire, music concert, and hoedown! It's all happening Friday, May 22 through Monday, May 25. There is a small parking fee. You can get further details by calling 1-800-573-9659 ext. 305, or by visiting the Memorial Day Blast website.
