Spend an Evening with Michael McDonald

By Nancy Price, Executive Director Peachtree City CVB

The Frederick Brown Jr. Amphitheater is a perfect place to spend a summer evening, and this weekend in Peachtree City promises to be memorable. One of the most recognizable voices in music plays at The Fred on Saturday night, June 12—the legendary Michael McDonald.

Michael McDonald, June 12
"Distinctive and soulful, McDonald’s voice is one of the most yearningly emotive instruments of our times. To this, add formidable songwriting and keyboard skills, and you have an artist who has been a singular musical presence for our decades. From 70’s era Doobie Brothers classics such as “What a Fool Believes” and solo hits like “I Keep Forgettin’” through two highly acclaimed Motown covers albums and recent genre-busting guest spots with alternative buzz bands Grizzly Bear and holy Ghost, the five-time Grammy-winning McDonald is that rare thing in contemporary pop — an artist whose work is both timeless and ever-evolving."

Hurry, if you want to spend an evening at The Fred with this amazing artist. There are a limited amount of reserved seats available. Reserve tickets are $55 - $75 while The Lawn is $45. Tickets can be purchased at The Fred Box Office or by calling 770-631-0630. Or you can go online at For information about an overnight stay at one of our hotels as well as where to eat and other things to do, visit our Peachtree City CVB website.

Play Cornhole This Weekend in Peachtree City!

By Nancy Price, Executive Director Peachtree City CVB

Today and tomorrow, Peachtree City will host it’s first American Cornhole Tournament! Everyone is invited to come out, watch, and try your hand at the game.

But what is Cornhole? Here are some facts from the American Cornhole Organization website:

“It has been called many things, Corn Toss, Bean Bag, Bean Toss, Soft Horseshoes, Indiana Horseshoes, but to many of us born and raised in Kentucky and the southern part of Ohio, the game is passionately referred to as Cornhole.

It has been said that the game originated in Germany in the 14th century, and then was rediscovered in the hills of Kentucky over 100 years ago.

The truth is, who really knows, but the game is great fun for all ages and can be played anywhere!

Cornhole or Corn Toss is similar to horseshoes except you use wooden boxes called cornhole platforms and corn bags instead of horseshoes and metal stakes. Contestants take turns pitching their corn bags at the cornhole platform until a contestant reaches the score of 21 points. A corn bag in the hole scores 3 points, while one on the platform scores 1 point.

Scoring can be swift and the lead may change hands several times in a match before the winner is decided.

The game is generally played tournament style with an individual or team being named the champion at the end of the tournament.
Corn Toss...Bean Bag...Bean Toss...Cornhole?

Why play Cornhole / Corn Toss?

The biggest reasons to play Cornhole or Corn Toss instead of horseshoes or other similar games is that Cornhole can be played anywhere and everyone can play Cornhole.

If you can aim and toss a corn bag 30 feet, you can master the game of Cornhole – It’s great for family outings.

Cornhole can be played anywhere – driveways, parks, backyard, campgrounds, beaches and even in-doors.

Safe for everyone – no metal or pointed objects. Corn bags are made of extra soft 12 oz. duck canvas material and filled with pliable high quality feed corn.

No muss; no fuss. Two cornhole platforms and 8 corn bags and you’re ready to play the game.

Very portable. Can be taken anywhere. Fits in most car trunks and there arefold-down models that are even more portable.

Horseshoes require a sand pit and are hard for the kids to pitch, lawn darts require a lawn and hasn’t been seen since the 70’s, ring toss was made for children and bean bags are for wimps; Cornhole is the game for everyone!”

The Peachtree City CVB invites everyone to come out and give Cornhole a try. The 2-day event is at the Peachtree City Tennis Center and begins this afternoon at 4pm. There will be music, food, and fun! Just $5.
