The city of Smyrna, Ga celebrated its 145th anniversary last Saturday at the Smyrna Market Village. There was music, fireworks, and even a 12 foot tall cake!
The city charter actually lists Smyrna’s incorporation date as September 6, 1897, but the city celebrates it the first weekend every August.
There were lots of children’s entertainment including face painters, stilt-walkers, and moonwalk. Food vendors served yummy barbecue. McEntyre’s Bakery made the cake, and also handed out 2,500 strawberry, chocolate, and vanilla cupcakes, with the help of Campbell High School football players and cheerleaders.
The music was provided by local artists Tim Purcell and the Mustangs, as well as Banks and Shane. There is lots of history in Smyrna, you should check it out!
