Vendors and attendees line walkway at Lake Lanier Olympic Park's summer "Beach Bash"

Crowds jam the plaza at Lake Lanier Olympic Park during the annual July “Beach Bash” event.

Once again, the LLOP Beach Bash was a popular, family- and pet-friendly event. With growing numbers of vendors and attendees, there was something for all ages. From live music performed by Dock Rock Radio, various food vendors, and a children’s beach complete with sand and toys, to an emphasis on water safety provided by the Safe Kids of Northeast Georgia, the event continues to thrive and has become a summer staple on Lake Lanier.
