Dear KBA Family,

Dear KBA Family,

Congratulations to all of you who were involved with our 40th annual Big Shanty Festival sponsored by Superior Plumbing! In case you missed it or haven’t heard…

-The Parade was awesome! (Congrats to Great Gig Dance Company for being named Best in Parade!)

-The weather could not have been nicer. We even had a gentle breeze blowing through both days!

-The festival was packed! RECORD CROWDS!

-Food sales set a record!

-The ground acts were incredible! (I think every kid in town held an alligator!)

-We set a record for sponsorships!

-Craft vendors crushed it!

I could go on and on, but isn’t that what Marlon’s for? All in all, it was as close to problem-free as we could ever expect. Thanks to all of you who came out and enjoyed the festival. If you did not come out, shame on you! Don’t you dare miss another one!

Special thanks to Marlon Longacre and the Big Shanty Festival committee for working year-round to make this festival the best, JRM Management for once again demonstrating why they are the very best in their business, the KBA board, all the vendors, entertainers, and parade participants, and all of the volunteers who worked hard to make it a great festival because they love their community. I can’t wait for BSF 2017!

As always, thank you all for granting me the honor of serving as President of the Kennesaw Business Association.

Greg Carter  –  2016 KBA President
