With the help of the Gwinnett Community Band and Silver Wings parachute demonstration team, the City of Suwanee will kick off Memorial Day weekend with a patriotic concert beginning at 7 p.m. Friday, May 27, at Town Center Park. Sponsored by the Gwinnett Daily Post, this event is free and open to the public.
A nonprofit group of musicians from throughout metro Atlanta, the Gwinnett Community Band will perform patriotic marches and other popular favorites. As part of this event, at approximately 7:30 p.m., weather permitting, members of the Silver Wings will drop in – literally – at Town Center Park. Silver Wings is the Command Exhibition Parachute Team of the U.S. Army Infantry and is based at Fort Benning.
Canned good donations will be accepted on behalf of area food co-ops. Those who donate five non-perishable food items will receive a City of Suwanee reusable bag.
Parking is available at Town Center Park, located at the intersection of Buford Highway and Lawrenceville-Suwanee Road, and across the railroad tracks on Main Street (take the pedestrian underpass to Town Center). Bring picnic baskets, blankets, chairs, and canned goods, but no alcohol please.
