SNELLVILLE – Events on the Towne Green are back!
After a hiatus due to Covid-19, the popular concerts on the lawn in front of Snellville City Hall return May 8 – a “Mom’s Night Out” – with the ever-popular Shag music group The Swingin’ Medallions. The show starts at 5:30 p.m. and the first 100 mothers in attendance will receive a free rose.
Masks and social distancing is encouraged and there will be plenty of sanitizing stations placed throughout the lawn for these free events. Centers for Disease Control and state guidelines regarding Covid-19 will be in effect. Organizers ask everyone to be courteous and keep their distance from the people next to them as they want to ensure a safe environment for everyone to enjoy the event.
“We are excited to bring back the events that Snellville residents and visitors have come to know and love,” said Mayor Barbara Bender. “While precautions are in place, we will still offer the same fun-filled evenings friends and family have enjoyed over the years while attending an event on the Towne Green. We hope to see you soon!”
