The staff of the city's official destination marketing organization, Visit Woodstock GA, has brainstormed and come up with a series of events for 2021 that are meant to keep people moving throughout downtown Woodstock, as they enjoy the thriving business community while remaining safe and socially distanced. Some events, like Friday Night Live, will not occur this year but will be replaced with less congested, more purposeful programming.
The average family wastes nearly 10,000 gallons of water per year due to household leaks. That's the amount of water it takes to wash 300 loads of laundry. Leaks could be costing you an additional 10% on your water bill.
Though Galentine's Day is a made-up holiday championed by a fictional character, we think Leslie Knope from NBC's Parks and Recreation would find Woodstock to be the perfect place to celebrate female friendships. According to Knope, "Every February 13, my lady friends and I leave our husbands and our boyfriends at home, and we just come and kick it, breakfast-style, ladies celebrating ladies.

Small businesses are a large part of what makes Woodstock authentic and vibrant. Our community needs to stand behind small businesses, especially now that the holiday season is over. Restaurants, personal services, and retailers need our continued support. While big box stores and massive online retailers offer convenience and competitive pricing, small businesses impact our local economy and character in irreplaceable ways.
City of Woodstock Police Department and City of Woodstock Fire and Rescue have some tips to help keep you, your loved ones, and your property safe this holiday season. Taking the time to think through scenarios related to gift buying, and even trimming the tree, can make a big difference.
