SUWANEE -- Already known for its events season around Gwinnett, Suwanee added to its regional trophy case this week.
The city brought home six Kaleidoscope Awards from the Southeast Festival and Events Association at its annual conference in Auburn, Ala, according to a news release. The city's Super Incredible Race and Suwanee Day were the headline winners out of the city's nearly 40 events last year.
The Super Incredible Race was named Best New Event after the scavenger hunt and race took teams through downtown Suwanee last spring. This year's installment is scheduled for April 20.
The 29th annual Suwanee Day won five awards, including gold for Best Sponsor, Lewis Expo and Logistics.
"I was really excited that Suwanee won more awards than any other city or organization," Events Manager Amy Doherty said in a news release. "We take a lot of pride in putting together creative, fun events that help enhance our sense of community."
This year's Suwanee Day festival, on Sept. 21, has been recognized by the Southeast Tourism Society as a top 20 event for the fall.
