I want to be the first to invite you to attend the New Ellenton Atomic City Festival on October 18, 2014.

Here are some highlights of what we have planned so far:

October 17th we will host our First Annual Family Movie Night in the Park.
MAC And Company Events, LLC has graciously supplied a 12’ by 12’ inflatable screen for us to use and we will show a “G” rated movie in the park. This will be a free event to anyone that would like to join. SAM’s Club has graciously donated some hot dogs and buns for this evening.
October 18th we will have the Festival from 10a to 6p.
October 18th 6:00pm we will have the headliner Palmetto Groove for your entertaining pleasure.
In the interest of bringing this festival back to it’s original glory we have booked a highly known 8 member band that has rich ties to New Ellenton.
