Summer Fun in Ball Ground

Written by Karen Jordan

Spring has sprung, and the first official day of summer is only a few short weeks away. Time to hit the road to enjoy all life has to offer. Each waking moment is precious time God gives us to spend with family and friends. Take advantage of that time and head to Ball Ground. Though small compared to other cities, what Ball Ground has to offer is an experience you won’t find anywhere else.
Downtown Development/Main Street Director Karla Weaver invites you to take advantage of a unique shopping and dining experience. Our calendar of events lists the season’s first Concert in the Park featuring the Local Legends band on June 1. Greg Henderson and his band will provide you with an evening of your favorite rock and country tunes.

June 16 is Pickin’ on Ball Ground, which begins at 1:00pm in City Park. Cherokee Music Center will be back in town on June 28 with Open Mic at Ball Ground’s downtown Food Court.

Ball Ground’s annual fireworks display has become known for being the biggest and best north Georgia has to offer. Fireworks will begin at 9:45pm on Saturday, June 29. The BEST Party Band in Atlanta will take the stage in City Park at 7:00pm to perform popular dance and party music from the 70s to current hits.

July events include Stage Fright Band on July 20 and Open Mic with Cherokee Music Center at 6:00pm in the downtown Food Court on July 26. Vintage Vixens will take the stage in City Park at 7:00pm on August 24. This all-female group inspired by 60s fashion has a playlist that takes on their look of groovy, funky, hippy music. Their playlist includes covers of the biggest hits from The Mamas & The Papas, The Turtles, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Drifters, Nancy Sinatra, Dusty Springfield, The Byrds, Young Rascals, The Kinks, Creedence Clearwater Revival, and more. It will be an evening full of happy 60s sing-along hits that are sure to make for a good time.

When coming to one of these amazing events, don’t forget to come early to shop and eat at one of Ball Ground’s many restaurants. Choose from a wide variety. No matter what you’re craving, you can find it in Ball Ground.

As north Georgia’s hidden treasure, “Ball Ground is the Place to Be” this summer! Karla Weaver and her Main Street Board work hard to bring you a unique experience in north Georgia.
