Get Out - And Enjoy the Memorial Day Weekend

There's plenty to do in and around the Peachtree Corners and Berkeley Lake communities.

Chances are you know someone who is graduating from an education institution this weekend. You should almost certainly go to that. But graduations only last for an hour or two. What's next you ask? We've got ya covered.


Thursday afternoon, Suwanee's Town Center Park will host local merchants and musicians. Meet members of the community as you browse the food items and trinkets or just relax on the lawn for the free music. This street festival takes place every fourth Thursday through October.

Thursday through Sunday, Aurora Theatre will show this heartfelt comedy about growing old and generational differences that most families experience.

Dave and Busters at Discover Mills is the latest venue in Gwinnett to embrace stand-up comedy with the show It's Always Funny in Gwinnett. This Friday night, veteran comic Scotty K performs in this weekly comedy series. Local comic Mia Jackson opens and Mike Albanese hosts.

Barnes and Noble at The Forum kicks off their 15th summer reading program this Friday at 7:00 p.m. Bring the kids to celebrate the power of reading and expanding a child's imagination. 

Come out early Saturday to the Town Green in Downtown Duluth to participate or just to support this great cause. Proceeds will benefit the Gwinnett Foundation, and in turn, development projects in Downtown Duluth.


In celebration of Memorial Day, Elvis impersonator Mark Pitt will pay "Tribute to the Troops" this Saturday night at New Dawn Theater. Reservations are suggested, due mainly to the fact that most people can't help themselves around hip shakes and sequined jump suits. Thank you very much (lip snarl).

Support the Susan G. Komen 3 Day Walk for the Cure at the Suwanee Dental parking lot on Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Locally made crafts and gently used children's toys, books and clothes will be available for purchase with proceeds benefitting the walk. 

RTS Packaging hosts this yearly run to benefit Kingdom Kids. Attendees and participants will get a chance to buy some of the season's first locally grown strawberries as well as take in some music, homemade goodies and strawberry-inspired specials in the local eateries.

Start off the week with the Rat Pack at Thrasher Park in Norcross. This tribute band will take the stage around 7:30 p.m., depending of course on the level of Dean's inebriation. Either way a good time will be had by all.

Coming home from a quick road trip, the Braves host the National League Central leading Cincinnati Reds Friday through Saturday. 
5/27 - 7:35 p.m.
5/28 - 7:10 p.m.
5/29- 8:00 p.m.
