There’s always something fun happening in Sandy Springs! With festivals and events ranging from holiday gift markets to paddleboard races, visitors of all interests can find events to enjoy during all seasons.
Sandy Springs Lantern Parade
In 2016, we launched a new tradition with the first annual "Take it to the River" Lantern Parade. Join us as we stroll together with brightly-colored and lighted globes, parasols, hats and whimsical creatures of every kind to pay tribute to the Chattahoochee and the community on its borders. As the parade arrives at Morgan Falls Overlook Park, we enjoy entertainment and sweet frozen treats while gazing out on a flotilla of lanterns in the shape of turtles, frogs, lily pads and Alice, the 25ft. albino alligator. It's a delightful way to spend a summer's evening.
Sandy Springs Independence Day Fireworks Display
Celebrate the Fourth of July at the Sandy Springs Stars & Stripes Fireworks Celebration at City Springs. (The event was previously held at the Concourse Corporate Center.)
Bring a picnic, or purchase a meal from nearby restaurants or on-site food trucks. Then, dance along to live music on City Green before enjoying the dazzling fireworks show.
