"We are so thrilled to be bringing this event to the Marietta Square. Each year, it has steadily grown while at White Water parking lot. White Water is great to work with and we really appreciate the years that they donated their parking lot to us," states Maryclaire Andres, Event Organizer. "However, something about having the opportunity to grow this event at the Marietta Square just feels right. We are pleased that the City of Marietta has partnered with us and that we have such a fantastic committee of community leaders on board.
There will be a VIP Hospitality Booth with former Brave Sid Bream and Otis NIxon. Leo Mazoni, former Braves Pitching Coach, will also be on hand to meet and greet with people.
