Spring has sprung as the City of Loganville events will get into full swing this week.
“We had a great turnout last week for the Movies on Main screening of ‘Ferdinand,’ so now we enter the busy month of May here in Loganville,” Events and Marketing Director Kristy Peters said. “The carnival is new this year so we are hoping it will be a great success and something we keep on our calendar for years to come. And the car show always offers a great time. I know there are a few cars every year I wish I could drive home in.”
The Loganville Carnival will take over the field next to City Hall beginning Thursday. The event, organized by Leisure Time Associates, will offer 14 rides that include the Yo Yo, Hurricane, Spider, Dizzy Dragons, Dragon Wagon and the Scrambler. This will be in addition to a number of different games as well as carnival food like cotton candy, popcorn, deep fried candy bars, sausage and peppers and more.
City Hall is located at 4303 Lawrenceville Road, Loganville. Parking is offered at City Hall and behind the Rock Gym as well as the grassy area on Main Street, which will be marked with parking signs. Limited handicapped parking will be provided in the parking lot next to the carnival that can be accessed from Lawrenceville Road.
The carnival will be from 5 to 10 p.m. Thursday; 5 to 11 p.m. Friday; 2 to 11 p.m. Saturday; and 2 to 10 p.m. Sunday. While there is no admission to enter the carnival, tickets are required for the rides and can be purchased at the carnival for $1 apiece or 18 tickets for $15. Single-day passes will also be available offering unlimited rides for $25.
Also this weekend will be the 14th annual Master’s Car Show, which will take over the Town Green on Saturday. Registration for those interested in participating will begin at 9:30 a.m. and costs $20 per car, with the event serving as a fundraiser to benefit the Logan House, a battered woman’s shelter that serves Loganville. More than 125 cars took part in last year’s show. This year the musical talents of the Tommy Taylor Band will be at the Ray Nunley Pavilion from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. There will also be food vendors on site, a raffle and door prizes in addition to the various awards that will be presented for the best cars.
