Annual Hummingbird Banding

SATURDAY, AUGUST 27

A truly one-of-a-kind experience, Julia Elliott (AKA The Hummingbird Whisperer) from Kennesaw’s own Bird Watcher Supply Company will be banding hummingbirds to gain vital information about bird history, especially migratory details and relative abundance of a given bird species from year to year. When a bird is banded, the bander collects important data about the bird’s age, sex, condition and plumage characteristics as well.

Garden Gallop 5K

It’s never too early to show off your Halloween costume! Plus, all runners enjoy free admission to Smith-Gilbert Gardens on Saturday, October 8 after the Race. SGG is open 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. – just bring your race bib!

The Kennesaw Grand Prix series is the premier 5K race series in north Georgia. Run on a mostly flat and fast asphalt course through downtown Kennesaw. Each of the six races is professionally timed and USAT&F Certified. The course is perfect for competitive runners seeking a qualifying time for the Peachtree Road Race. But the festival-like atmosphere and plentiful food and drink make these races perfect for beginner runners/walkers as well as families.
