Get your calendar ready: Evans Towne Center Park is about to be busy with events

Friday, Feb. 8, 2019

EVANS, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) -- With the weather exceedingly nice as of late, many of us are thinking about getting out and about in the community.

Well, the folks over at Evans Towne Center Park are getting ready to hold some of the biggest events in Augusta. Get your calendar ready.

Kari Grover, a mother of two, is certainly getting her calendar ready in an effort to keep her kids occupied.

“Always looking for ways to entertain them,” Grover said.

With two kids, you can usually catch the Grover family at the rock wall near Lady A.

“Every day I ask them where do you want to go, and they’re like, ‘The tall playground,’” Grover said.

But the park isn’t just going to be home to kids this spring and summer. Take a look at what’s coming up in the months ahead.

•Columbia County Farmers Market
•Saturday Cinema
•Cinco Saturday
•Towne Center Carnival
•Easter Egg Scramble
•Zac Brown Band
•Pops in the Park
•BOOM! in the Park

And the park is adding something new this year -- a carnival starting in June.

But regular park denizen Brittany Butler is particularly excited about Zac Brown Band. The group is set to take the stage on April 11.

“I really like them,” Butler said. “I mean, we have friends coming into town, so we’ll bring them.”

Darnice Culp has never been to an event, but she’s willing to try considering the events.

“I think it’s a big draw for the area,” Culp said.

But there’s yet another event coming. We can’t give you the details yet, but we can tell you that it’s something record-setting. That announcement will be coming next week.
