Spend your first long weekend of summer at our annual Memorial Day Celebration in Senoia. Food trucks will keep bellies full and DJs spinning live music will have you grooving to the beat.

Although Memorial Day has evolved into a day of celebration, it’s important to acknowledge the true reason for its observance – to honor and remember the courageous members of our armed forces who have made the ultimate sacrifice while serving our nation.
