Hometown Celebration: May the Fourth Be With You!

May the Fourth Star Wars Hometown ImageHometown Celebration returning to downtown Milly on May 4th

Milledgeville, GA – Main Street is excited to announce the return of the Hometown Celebration to downtown Milledgeville, and there is SO much to celebrate! In addition to being named a Great American Main Street City, this year marks 30 years of Main Street’s service to Milledgeville, building community connections through shared experiences. Main Street, the City of Milledgeville, Georgia College, and downtown businesses have partnered in shared support of this much anticipated community event, keeping it free and open to the public.

Introduced in 2014, the Hometown Celebration honored the City of Milledgeville Main Street/DDA earning award and designation as a national Great American Main Street City, as a community whose success serves as a model for preservation-based commercial district revitalization across the nation. Now in its fifth year, the Hometown Celebration has quickly become a community favorite event. On Friday, May 4th, from 6pm – midnight, the 100 block of West Hancock Street will be OPEN to pedestrians! While strolling around, be sure to check out the Old Capital Car Club’s boss classic cars from 6-9pm.

Two popular bands will be performing to keep the fun flowing. Local favorites from past First Friday events form the band Fiancé. They will open at 6pm with their smooth, old school Motown jams. At 8pm, headlining band Stereotype brings their unique music flavor from the Augusta, Georgia area with high energy, party rocking music of top 40’s hits, 90s hip hop, and everything in between.

New to Hometown this year… Embracing the Star Wars fandom holiday with which this celebration coincides, downtown will “Strike Back” and evade attack of the daily ho-hum at this event giving the community “New Hope” for galactic entertainment as the fun “Force Awakens.” Costumes of the “First Order” are encouraged to channel your inner Jedi, Sith, Leia, Stormtrooper, or other character. Entertainment reigns in the downtown galaxy and includes a Chewbacca Sound-Alike Contest, Costume Contest, Ahch-some activities, intergalactic photo ops, and, of course… May the Fourth Be with You!

8:00pm – Costume Contest
$20 Milly Money prize for winner in each of the 4 categories: Under 12, 12-17, 18+ & People’s Choice. Winners in an age category are not eligible to win People’s Choice award.

8:30pm – Chewbacca Sound-Alike Contest
$20 Milly Money prize for overall winner

Hometown Celebration

Milledgeville earned national recognition in 2014 as one of the finest downtowns in America and was awarded as a Great American Main Street City. In honor of our community being awarded as one of the top in the nation, our community partners are hosting a celebration to which all community members and supporters are invited. The Hometown Celebration is always a crowd-pleaser, with this year’s event on a Saturday, having extended hours, and has been moved earlier in the year, when the weather isn’t as hot, for a block party of epic proportions!

On Saturday, April 22nd, from 2-10 pm, the 100 block of West Hancock Street will be OPEN to pedestrians for the 3rd Hometown Celebration! Blind Driver, Scott Little, The Majestics and other live bands will provide music to keep downtown Milledgeville rockin’ and toe-tappin while there will be activities the entire family can enjoy. Local organizations will keep the activities going, downtown businesses will have limited time special sales, and the outdoor dining options will be plentiful. Be on the lookout for other Hometown fun too.

For more information, contact the Main Street Office by phone at 478.414.4014 or email adavis@nullmilledgevillega.us.
