Visiting Athens for University of Georgia’s move-in weekend or looking for a family fun event to celebrate the last weekend of summer vacation? Join My Athens and Terrapin Beer Co. for their Watermelon Party! They are teaming up for a belated celebration of the release of Terrapin’s Watermelon Gose this summer.

The Watermelon Party will take place from 4:30-8pm on Sunday, August 7th and will be filled with everything a late Georgia summer has to offer-- juicy melons, juicy beer and a good excuse to let the kids splash around in the sun. There will also be chefs and local food folk offering a creation made with watermelons, purchased from local farmer friends.
