There’s always plenty to do in and around Smyrna and, as summer gets going, that’s even more the case than it is at other times of year. If you’re looking for other events or attractions, be sure to ask your Realtor; they’re always aware of things to do.

 

Acworth Dragon Boat Festival

This is the Third Annual Acworth Dragon Boat Race, and it’s a great family event to check out if you’re in Smyrna during the beginning of May. The Event helps the Loving Arms Cancer Outreach. Competitors include corporate, city, and other teams. If you haven’t seen a Dragon Boat, it’s worth the trip. These vessels have 20 rowers each and are adorned with dragon heads on each end of the boat. If you’re an avid photographer, this is a great event. You can get more information by clicking here.
