In honor of Milledgeville being awarded as a Great American Main Street in 2014, Main Street, along with many community partners, is hosting a celebration to which all community members and supporters are invited. In its fourth year, the Hometown Celebration has quickly become a favorite event in Milledgeville. After many requests, the event has been moved from Fall to Spring to avoid the blistering heat and take advantage of the Georgia’s beautiful Spring weather. The event is also being held on Saturday, instead of Friday evening, allowing more time to enjoy the block party.
On Saturday, April 22 from 2 - 10 pm, the 100 block of West Hancock Street will be OPEN to pedestrians for the 4 th Annual Hometown Celebration! Bands will play throughout the day and popular lake country band, Blind Driver, will close out the evening. There will be activities the entire family can enjoy, including trolley rides courtesy of the CVB. Local groups will be out to keep the activities going and downtown businesses will have special sales going on. Be on the lookout for multiple goodie giveaways and other hometown fun too.
CALL FOR CHAMPIONS!
The crowd will gather around the stage at 4pm to recognize the success of Milledgeville-Baldwin County teams and individuals in a Champions Parade! Milledgeville-Baldwin County teams and individuals that have won a championship or placed in a competition are encouraged to contact Carlee Schulte at firstname.lastname@example.org to submit a request.
