Sandy Springs Festival on the way

September 8, 2017 by  

For the 32nd year, Sandy Springs will celebrate its heritage with a party that could bring in more than 20,000 people.

The Sandy Springs Festival runs for two days, during which people can enjoy all kinds of activities including 5K and 10K races, and a Chalk Walk Art Competition. There will be plenty of food of all kinds as well.

Over 100 artists will participate in the Artist Market, and local businesses will be in the Business Expo, where festival attendees can talk to them about their products and services. Saturday brings a Car Show with hot rods, exotic cars, and custom and classic vehicles. The Children’s Park will offer pony rides, face painting, and a petting zoo, while over at the Main Stage, people can listen to live entertainment. There is also a Pet Parade on the schedule, as well as a Battle of the Bands.

The event is Heritage Sandy Springs’ main fundraiser. The organization operates and manages Heritage Green, a park comprising four acres in the city’s downtown. The Green is home to the Williams-Payne House, as well as the underground springs that gave the city its name.

The festival is scheduled for September 23 and 24, at Heritage Green, and is free of charge. Events like this can do well if organizers work with a flyer printing company to create a handout that lists the events, and where they are scheduled to take place.
