The countdown is on to Summerfest 2018; June 8-10
Summerfest is right around the corner and this year is shaping up to be the best Summerfest yet! We’ve brought back all of the favorites like top artists and fun cover bands for the music stage at the triangle, and lots of new things, including an expanded local market, adult big wheel races, a petting zoo and Xtreme Airballs for Kidsfest, and a few other surprises as well.
Everything kicks off Friday, June 8th with the Summerfest parade. This year’s theme is Super Heroes so kids (and adults!) can show off their super hero powers in their favorite super hero costumes. After the parade, we’ll have the Community Dinner for VaHi residents in John Howell Park followed by a showing of Guardians of the Galaxy 2!
The festivities continue bright and early on Saturday, June 9th with the Summerfest 5K race and tot trot. Sign-ups for the 5K, which is chip timed and a certified Peachtree Road Race qualifier, are available at https://endurancecui.active.com/event-reg/select-race?e=52227251and sign-ups for tot trot will be available at the Friday parade and community dinner and Saturday morning before the trot. Following the 5k and tot trot, we’ll have two full days of great artists and music on the stage at the triangle and the main stage at John Howell Park.
Come out and celebrate our amazing neighborhood on June 8 (community events), 9, & 10 at the best Summerfest yet! For more details, visit vahisummerfest.org
