Food Truck Saturday - October 17
It’s Fall, Y’all!
Food Truck Saturday Social is coming your way on Saturday, October 17th at Lake Lanier Olympic Park from 2pm to 7pm. Enjoy the familiarity of our summertime Food Truck events, this time with hay bales, cider, and pumpkins on a Saturday Fall afternoon. Spend the day outside with friends and family, enjoying the great food and drink options and listening to the live music of Ted & Johnny.
Bill Fields, 1952 Olympic Gold medalist in rowing, voiced a vision for Lake Lanier when he pitched the site to be home to the rowing events in the 1996 Centennial Olympic Games in Atlanta. During the Olympics, rowers gathered from around the globe to compete here for the Gold; for the dream of being an Olympic Champion. Today, that legacy continues as teams continue to train and compete on the best water in the world.
Today when you visit Lake Lanier Olympic Park you will experience so much more than rowing. Today you can relax on the sandy beach, enjoy a picnic and a good book in Fields Memorial Butterfly garden, or take a walk through the park taking in wonderful art. If you enjoy fishing, there’s a great shoreline to cast a line. Or you may enjoy simply taking in the moment knowing you are walking where Champions walk and paddling where the best of the best come to train and compete.
Keep your eyes on the calendar. Concerts and festivals are happening all the time.
