Frogtown Crawfish Festival Kicks off Friday, May 12 in Woodruff Park!   Looks like another perfect Spring weekend to get out find some fun adventures in Columbus, GA!  And one thing you really should put on your list to check out is the 2017 Frogtown Crawfish Festival in Woodfuff Park in Uptown Columbus.   This will be the 10th year for this festival and it all kicks off Friday, May 12 (6:00-11:30pm) and all day on Saturday with things cranking up at 10:00am and going all the way until 11:30pm.   Both days will be full of all sorts of fun—anything from arts & crafts, games, inflatables, raffles—stuff everyone in the family will enjoy.  If it’s live music you’re in the mood for, take a beach chair, find a good spot and prepare to be entertained!  On the line-up is a Pink Floyd Tribute Band, a Dave Matthews Tribute Band, Groove Monkeys, Stay Classy, Misty Harbor, Damn Skippy and lots more. And you can’t have a Crawfish Festival without loads of great food…including a Crawfish Boil both days.  I’ve never had the chance to sample this delicacy, so this will be my chance to give it a try!     It’s only $10 for adult entry and kids 12 and under get in free, so this is a perfect family outing…and you get to dive into a big bowl of delicious crawfish! That does look pretty tasty!!

Three Major Spring Festivals Over the Next Month!

April 7, 2017

With the warm weather of Spring upon us, Columbus is going all out to enjoy the warm days and cool nights with a trio of outdoor festivals at the river over the next few weeks! Don’t say you don’t have anything to do! Columbus is inviting you down to the river for whitewater fun, great food, music, and tons of outdoor activities for the whole family!   Explore Georgia highlights the upcoming festivals.    First is Paddle South, April 14-15th, at the Eagle and Phenix water tower. The 2017 USA Freestyle Kayak National Championships will be taking place. That will be great, but I’m even more excited about the accompanying beer and barbecue festival with around 20 BBQ vendors putting out their very best offerings! Nothing says Spring in the South like sitting along the river and eating BBQ! Entrance is $5 for the festival.    Next up is Uptown’s RiverFest on May 5th and 6th. This is one of the biggest events of the year on Columbus and officially kicks off the Whitewater Season. Events will take place all weekend in Woodruff Park and all over the RiverWalk with the kickoff of the Uptown Concert Series and many other activities. And, it is all FREE!    Finally, we have the 10th Annual Frogtown Crawfish Festival happening the next weekend at Woodruff Park along the river on Friday, May 12th, from 5pm to 11pm and Saturday, May 13th, from 9am to 11pm. This festival will include live music, food, inflatables, arts and crafts, vendors, games, and, of course, a massive crawfish boil. Admission is $10, but kids 12 and under get in free!   Spring Festival season in Columbus provides so many opportunities to Go All Out! We hope to see you there!

PaddleSouth means more than just kayaks in the river!

March 28, 2017

No doubt the highlight of the upcoming 2017 PaddleSouth competition will be the unparalleled talent showing off their kayaking skills on the Columbus, GA Whitewater Course, April 14-15.  But don't forget about all the other stuff happening as part of this event!  We've teased you with details on the freestyle kayak action and the tempting aroma of the barbecue competition, but don't overlook some of the other components of this jam-packed weekend like the Omaha Brewing Biergarten and all the live music on stage. Beer lovers rejoice!  The Omaha Brewing Biergarten will offer a spectacular view of the Chattahoochee River while you enjoy some liquid refreshment from Columbus’ closest craft brewery. Bringing multiple craft beers, this section of the festival promises to be a hot-spot!   And nothing goes better with ice cold brew than some incredible live music and PaddleSouth has got the music covered!  Caleb Gambel has a voice like butter and Big Saxxy was born to amaze with his top notch saxophone talent.  They'll be on stage from 4:00-6:00pm.   Then, sticking with the southern, down-by-the-river theme, festival goers will get down to Blackberry Possum, a local bluegrass band.   Boats, Beer, and Bands.  The 2017 PaddleSouth Compeption sounds like a perfect weekend to me!
