PTC yard and garden show cancelled

The annual Spring Yard and Garden Show, hosted by Peachtree City Parks and Recreation Department, that was scheduled for Saturday, Apr. 24, has been cancelled.  

“Due to the lack of commitment from vendors, we feel it would be best to cancel the 2010 show,” said Event Coordinator, Ashley Alonso. “This year it seems as though there was not much of an interest for something like this. We are hoping for a bigger and better show sometime in the future.”

If you have any questions or need more information, please contact Ashley Alonso at 770-631-2542 or aalonso@peachtree-city.org.

One of most pleasant surprises is how easy it is to find and reconnect with old friends! Read More»
