Riley Biederer Plays at Sunset Cove Opening

Monday, February 24th, 2014

It was a beautiful opening weekend for Sunset Cove, the beach cafe and club situated on the beach here at Lake Lanier Islands. The sun was shining, the wind was quiet, and the food was phenomenal! And to top it all off, local favorite Riley Biederer brought the music as the sun began to sink into the Lake. Yes sir, good times at Sunset Cove! It’s only the beginning, too. We’ve kicked off the summer THREE MONTHS early because we’re tired of winter! So we enclosed the restaurant (with these pretty awesome roll-up doors so it can be open in the summer), lit up the fireplace, and turned on the lights so we could hang out with you guys year-round! How about we take a look at what went down this weekend?

Boaters started to arrive pretty early.

The fireplace was roaring!

Overall, a great evening!

The grilled shrimp appetizer.

Riley Biederer was seriously rockin’ the Sunset Stage!

Sunset Cove Beach Cafe & Club is now open weekends! So come on out and enjoy a great atmosphere and delicious food!

The 2013 Aquapalooza Olympic Games

Friday, August 2nd, 2013

It was an epic year for the Aquapalooza Olympic Games, with well over 50 participants young and old! Held at Big Beach just after lunch time, the Aquapalooza staff made sure the teams were even and began doling out identifying handkerchiefs.

Kicking off round one, the Dizzy Izzy: a relay race not for the faint of heart, or balance. Contenders needed to spin around the bat three times before sprinting down to a cone and back to tag the next person in line.

Invariably, the adults had a tougher time of it than the kids. We think the slanted beach had something to do with that…

Round Two: Teams send one player at a time with a tiny shovel full of water down the beach to fill up a bucket until time ran out. The team with the most water in their bucket would be declared the winners!

Orange Team won the Bucket Run! They were really excited!

The third round was the classic Water Balloon Toss. Proceed to party:

After some minor controversy, Red Team was declared the winner!

For round four, teams were asked to sit in a line and pass flour by the handful over their shoulders, down the line, and into a bucket. This event was by far the messiest, and probably also the most fun.

While waiting for the buckets to be judged, some of the contenders needed a little help getting the flour cleaned off.

And finally, Black Team was declared victorious! Not that these kids cared:

After a quick wash in the lake to get the rest of the flour off, it was time for the Final Round: the Blindfolded Kayak Race!

And Red Team won the Kayak Race!! Interestingly, there was a 3-way tie for first place after the last event, so, after a quick consultation with team captains, a final tie-breaker round was announced. 3 Kayaks, across the lake and back, winner takes all. IT. WAS. EPIC.

Red Team had already proved its finesse in the Blindfolded Kayak Race, and true to form, they won the speed race as well. Therefore it is with great honor and pride that we announce the Gold Medalists in the 2013 Aquapalooza Olympic Games: RED TEAM!!! Congratulations!! And thank you to everyone who participated! We can hardly wait for next year – better start training!


Islands “Give Back Thursdays” Are Back!!

Monday, July 29th, 2013

Hey everyone! We’re coming up on our last couple of weeks of LanierWorld weekly fun, and we wanted to finish off the summer with enthusiasm! That’s why we’re very pleased and excited to announce the comeback of “Give Back Thursdays” for August 1st and 8th. You guys did such an amazing job of bringing in canned foods and donations in June (635 cans in just a couple hours!!) that we can’t wait to see what you’ll do for GoodWill in August!!

Those were just a FRACTION of the cans y’all brought in last time, and the Harvest House was extremely grateful to all you do-gooders. And so were we! It was a great month for a great cause! But now we’re ready for the next operation!

All you need to do is bring in a bag of your gently used clothes, and you’ll receive HALF OFF your All Attractions Daily Access Pass!! What was $35 for an adult or child over 42″ would only be $17.50 with a bag of your old clothes that you don’t wear anyway!

Summer is nearing its end and we’re teaming up with Goodwill of North Georgia for this series of “Give Back Thursdays.”  Once again, bring a bag of donations to Lanier World on Thursday, August 1st or 8th (This Thursday and the next Thursday) and in addition to helping put people to work in your community, you’ll receive half off admission to Lanier World.  A bag of your gently used items for half off a day of summer fun at Lanier World. That sounds like a deal to us!!

So bring your denim jackets, your sequin purses, your golf tournament tshirts, and your socks that you got for Christmas from Grandma and never wore because you’re an 18-year old guy and snowflakes and penguins just aren’t your style! Put it all in a bag – stuff it full – and bring on down to the water park for a full day at half-price!

God bless you all, you citizens of great charity! We love you to pieces!
