Free movies, concerts offered throughout Gwinnett

Now that school is out and the warm weather has arrived, you can head outdoors to enjoy the natural beauty of nature. When you become bored with that, there are several free movies and concerts around the county this weekend in the open air -- the hard part may be choosing which ones to attend. -- Compiled by Staff Reporter Meghan Kotowski
