ON STANDS NOW: Even though the Conyers Fabulous Fourth festival is canceled for this year (budget cuts), there's still plenty of events going on in and around the county to help celebrate Independence Day.
Whether it's parades, cookouts, concerts or just watching fireworks, we have a list of family friendly places to go with our Independence Day Event Guide in this week's edition.
If you're cooking out at home with friends and family, we have mouthwatering recipes from local restaurants and chefs, including from Whistle Post, Jim N Nick's, Sonny's, and Pippen's, for you to try.
Plus, what better way to celebrate your rights by making your voice heard at the ballot box? With the July 31 primary and nonpartisan elections right around the corner, we have sample ballots printed inside.
