SUWANEE -- Memorial Day weekend will feature two events around Town Center Park.
The University of West Georgia Concert Band will perform a free concert at 7 p.m. on Friday. The annual concert, which typically features the Silver Wings aerial demonstration team from Fort Benning, will be without the parachuters due to federal sequestration budget cuts. The West Georgia Concert Band, though, will include woodwind, brass and percussion players.
On Saturday, the Atlanta Braves game against the New York Mets will be shown on a big screen in the park in an annual event called "Game on the Green." The event, which begins at 6 p.m., includes inflatables and activities.
The piece of artwork taken from the Berlin Wall that's been displayed in front of City Hall recently is scheduled to be auctioned at 4:30 p.m. on Saturday. Bids may be submitted onsite or online by live webcast at www.auctionEbid.com.
