Festival to tap Heart of South DeKalb
9/6/2013, 6 a.m.
The “Heart of South DeKalb” will be celebrated on Sept. 28 at the Gallery at South DeKalb in Decatur.
The daylong free outdoor festival will showcase and promote the best of south DeKalb County. It takes place from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. and includes a parade, bands, vendors, a kid’s zone, a car/motorcycle showcase, stage entertainment and performances, surprise guest appearances, live radio/TV broadcast, a souvenir directory, and sponsor giveaways.
District 3 Commissioner Larry Johnson, who conceived the festival, says it will recognize and celebrate the South DeKalb community.
“The Heart of South DeKalb will be a unique, culturally diverse celebration,” he said. “There will be something for everyone.”
Johnson says that the event will open the door for companies and other organizations to publicly exhibit their corporate commitment to the community.
“Presenting an event of this magnitude is certainly an undertaking that cannot be approached single-handedly,” Johnson said. “We have the corporate community and the community at large working together to make this festival a success.”
Sponsorship and vendor opportunities are available.
