I think we are very blessed to have the number of weekend outdoor activities that we have in this community.
From plant sales and festivals at the Georgia Southern Garden of the Coastal Plain to the Mainstreet Farmers Market and First Fridays downtown, there is virtually something to do outside every weekend if you are so inclined.
Because I am so glad and grateful that our community is so vibrant and supportive, I wanted to bring to your attention another weekend activity that is about to get underway.
The new Brooklet Flea Market will start May 4. It will be held the first Saturday of each month at Brooklet Community Park, and will run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
For those of you not familiar with the area, it is the Brooklet Peanut Festival grounds on Railroad Street.
According to a spokesperson from Brooklet City Hall, there will be several booth spaces available. They are not pay-in-advance. You will need to show up with your merchandise in hand at around 7 a.m. to get your spot.
They will have outdoor spaces (15 feet by 15 feet) for $20, and covered spaces (10 feet by 12 feet) for $25.
I was told there will be approximately 120 to 140 available to rent. And there will be plenty of free parking.
For more information, call Brooklet City Hall at (912) 842-2137.
Many of you may already know this, but the Statesboro Convention and Visitors Bureau has a comprehensive website that includes a community calendar, a Georgia Southern Athletic calendar, an events calendar, and a comprehensive description of upcoming festivals by month.
To access the website, go to www.visitstatesboroga.com, and you will find plenty of things to do right here in your own backyard.
So, until next Tuesday, I bid you au revoir.
