Can you smell what Lake Lanier Islands is cooking?? It’s BBQ like you’ve never seen before!! In partnership with and support of the Georgia Firefighters Burn Foundation, Lake Lanier Islands is very pleased and excited to be hosting the first annual BBQ, Boots & Blues Festival on November 3rd, 2013! Gather ’round as more than 20 local hand-picked restaurants show off their BBQ-cookin’ chops on the Peachtree Pointe event field and listen to some amazing musicians jamming out under the crisp blue sky all day long.

Our biggest surprise of the Summer so far took place Monday morning at LanierWorld: a surprise FREE entry day!! Everyone got to just waltz in to LanierWorld like they owned the place from 10am-noon and stay all day! We were overwhelmed with the incredible response from the community, and even though it took a good bit of time to get through the main gate, once people found out our big surprise, it was all smiles from then on! Looks like you guys have been listening to us when we say our social media followers get special attention.

Was it fun over at WiggleWaves? You bet it was!

How was the water in Georgia’s largest wave pool? Chilly, but with a 100% chance of fun!

Who likes the Raging River? These kids do!

Just how popular are the mighty Twister and Typhoon? Guests cheered when the lifeguards opened the ride!

Where can a kid go to get soaked around here? How about the FunDunker!
