This Weekend in Georgia!

It's the second weekend in July, so, we hope you're out there enjoying the great State of Georgia and all it has to offer! If you're looking for some ideas, we've got some:

The folks at Red Top Mountain State Park in Cartersville invite you to a night time hike they call "Party with the 'Possums". Suitable for all ages, you can learn about the opossum, our local marsupials, and other creatures active at night in the Georgia forest. The hike leaves from the Visitors Center around 8 PM tonight- July 10. Bring your own flashlight and wear sturdy shoes. For more information, visit the Red Top Mountain State Park website or call 770-975-4226. If you miss the July 10 hike, similar events take place on Friday, July 17 and Friday, July 24.

At the Cannonball House in Macon, you can learn all about the "Art of Food Preservation" this Saturday, July 11 from 11AM until 4 PM. You can see historians dressed in period-style clothing in the original brick Cannonball House kitchen as they prepare summer's harvest for the winter. Learn about 19th century food preservation techniques as a part of the "Art of 19th Century Living" series of events. which explore life and customs of the mid-1800's. For more information, visit the Cannonball House website.

And down on the coast, it may not be a strictly weekend activity, but if you're in Savannah, you should plan to take in a "Mercer in the Squares" concert. A part of the centennial celebration of Savannah native Johnny Mercer, this concert series will present some of the area's most talented musicians performing Mercer favorites in Johnson and Wright Squares. One concert is today, July 10 from 11:30-1:30PM. If you missed that one, don't worry, you'll have an opportunity to enjoy the performances on Wednesdays and Fridays all month long! For more information, visit the City of Savannah's Department of Cultural Affairs website.

And those are just a few of the ideas you'll find if you visit ExploreGeorgia.org, the tourism website operated by our production partners at the Georgia Department of Economic Development. Check it out!
