Olde Town Summer Series offers parents kid-friendly activities
Placeholder Image
Parents won't have to look very far to find fun and educational activities to keep kids busy during the summer months. The 13th annual Olde Town Summer Series offers more than 70 activities, workshops, camps and events for elementary and middle school aged kids.

"It's a fantastic summer children's program. We have a lot of excellent community partnership in the community," said Monica Coffin, manager of the Conyers Main Street program. This year there are at least 20 to 30 more programs offered than last year, said Coffin.

"We want to offer some fun educational activities for children to participate in during the summer, but we also strive to keep it as affordable as possible," said Coffin. "During these tough economic times, these are some of the few activities some children will be able to participate in this year."

Some of the highlights of the series include free events such as the Hero Club and Pizza Party on July 9, where children can meet real life heroes - police officers, fire fighters and emergency responders, the July 15 Safari Adventure, where kids can learn about different animals, and magician Ken Scott on July 16.
Tickets to the free events, which are sponsored by the Main Street program, are available two weeks prior to the event at the Olde Town Welcome Center/Depot, which is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and are limited to four per parent.
