As Troup County prepares for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday, several events will be hosted around the area. Residents have several options to choose from when considering their weekend plans including several outdoor activities.

Residents looking to escape the town can attend a variety of events hosted at F.D. Roosevelt State Park. Ranger Talk Friday at 6 p.m. and Frontier Day on Saturday at Nov. 20 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. are both free and open to the public with the exception of the $5 parking fee. Additionally, the Fall Bingo and Campfire Event will be on Friday at 7 p.m. and is $3 plus parking.

Those who want to listen to some music can head over to Beacon Brewing as they will be hosting live music in their garage for their patrons Sunday. Emma Brown, an employee at Beacon, said this is a recurring event.

“We have live music come every weekend, every other Saturday and then every Sunday. Sunday’s at four o’clock to seven o’clock,” Brown said. “The band usually sits up in the container we have in the backyard, and we open the garage up so people sitting inside can hear it.”

Downtown Hogansville will be hosting its annual Sip N Shop this weekend and members of the community can wander around downtown stores while enjoying food trucks and other refreshments.

The Choral Society of West Georgia will host their “Gather Together – A Concert of Praise, Thanksgiving and Remembrance” this Sunday at 5:30 p.m. at First United Methodist Church Sanctuary.

The Walk to End Alzheimers will be held at The Coleman Center at 8 a.m. Saturday morning.
