See & Do - Special event: SweetWater 420 Festival April 12 2010
Sat.-Sun., April 17-18
It's time to kick off the festival season with warm weather, a frosty brew and old-fashioned, earth-friendly activities in a nod to Earth Day at the sixth annual SWEETWATER 420 FESTIVAL. The two-day music and arts festival takes over Candler Park with a 5K road race, arts and crafts, environmental forums and exhibitions, and, of course, SweetWater's award-winning beers. Toast to good times and tunes as George Porter, Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Stanton Moore Trio, the Pimps of Joytime and more take the stage as part of the festival's musical lineup. What better way to celebrate Mother Nature than with good drinks, good music and good deeds? Partial proceeds from wristband sales go toward a new walking path. Free-$5. Sat., noon-10 p.m.; Sun., 12:30-8 p.m. Candler Park, 1500 McLendon Ave. www.sweetwater420fest.com.
