Atlanta Homecoming Begins Thursday

The 2023 Atlanta Homecoming begins Thursday and runs through Sunday at various sites in town. Volunteer Aaron Baker says there is one notable change for Thursday night.

The royalty events will begin at 6:30 that night with Little Mr and Miss Atlanta. Friday activities will be at the community ballpark with the Macon County Cattlemen’s Brisket Dinner, the ol’ timers softball games and a street dance. Baker says Saturday will have a variety of activities for the kids at the city park.

The Saturday activities include a kids fishing tournament at 8 am, a car and tractor show at 11 am and kid olympics at 1 pm. No Apology will begin performing at 11 am and Madd Hoss Jackson takes the stage at 7 pm. Baker says he’s excited for this year’s live entertainment.

Atlanta Homecoming activities conclude Sunday morning with area church services in the park at 11 followed by a fried chicken picnic at noon. More information can be found online on their Facebook page.
