By Eric Ekpe (City Intern)

We are now three months into 2018 and we have released our event lineup! The temperature is rising, making our hunger for fun community activities increase. Here is what’s going to take place around our city this year.

Parks: Enjoy the nicer weather by going to the park. Sugar Hill has two primary parks: City owned Gary Pirkle Park (6195 Austin Garner Rd, Sugar Hill, GA 30518) and County owned E.E. Robinson Park (850 Level Creek Rd, Sugar Hill, GA 30518). Each park is local and no more than 15 minutes from City Hall. Check our website and our Facebook page for any events we may have at our parks.

Maker Fest: Join Lanier High School and WOWEE on April 21st from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. and experience Maker Fest and a 5k. Maker Fest is an event where creators, designers, and artists show off what they make and how they make it. This event was started by Sugar Hill’s very own Lanier High School and is the perfect way to find a new hobby to enjoy. This event is very interactive and a great learning opportunity on how to create something new.
