RowAmerica Peachtree grand opening
Drive, drive, drive your way south of town to check out the new RowAmerica Peachtree. The former Peachtree City Rowing Club has partnered with the national RowAmerica under a new name and is bringing events, programs and coaching to the Atlanta metro area. On Saturday, it will hold one of its first events, sure to draw spectators with a love for rowing as well as curiosity about the sport. Check out the refurbished boathouse, and grab some giveaways. A race is scheduled, and there will be other opportunities to get in the water of Lake McIntosh and experience the sport firsthand. Advance registration is advised.
10 a.m.-2 p.m. July 23. Free admission. RowAmerica Peachtree, 3501 TDK Blvd., Peachtree City. 770-243-5750, rowpeachtree.com.
“Snoopy, the Musical”
Can you ever get enough of this lovable beagle? This weekend his always-energetic snout will team with Woodstock — the city of, not his best-bird pal. The Elm Street Cultural Arts Village, in partnership with the new development South on Main, presents “Snoopy, the Musical” Saturday and Sunday. Based on the ageless comic strip “Peanuts,” the show stars the adorable dog and most of his pals — Charlie Brown, Lucy, Peppermint Patty and Linus. It doesn’t get much more family-friendly than this.
2 p.m. July 23 and 24. $10 in advance; $12 at the door. City Center Auditorium, 8534 Main St., Woodstock. 678-494-4251, elmstreetarts.org.
Movies Under the Stars double feature
Few things are better than a warm summer night under the stars. Add a little entertainment, and you’ve got a perfect evening. The city of Suwanee offers such an opportunity with a movie double feature in Town Center Park. First up will be “Kung Fu Panda 3” at 7 p.m. for kids of all ages to enjoy. But, when the sun goes down, the big guns — or should we say blasters — take over the screen with “Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens.” Chairs and blankets are welcome, but alcohol isn’t.
7-11:30 p.m. July 23. Free. Town Center Park, 330 Town Center Ave., Suwanee. 770-945-8996, suwanee.com.
