Rio on the Water Olympic Celebration at Lake Lanier

I know what you’re thinking, but it won’t work.  Mentioning my name will not get you a free ticket to the “Rio on the Water” party celebrating the memory of the Olympic Games at Lake Lanier.  Yes, it’s $100 per person, but you’ll get a priceless memory, excellent food and the unique opportunity to watch the opening ceremonies of the Olympics in Rio … from where the Olympics were held on Lake Lanier.

Governor Nathan Deal and his wife will lead the festivities on Friday, August 5, 2016, commemorating the 20th Anniversary of the 1996 Olympic Games where the Canoe/Kayak/Rowing events were held on Lake Lanier.

Guests will be greeted with a Brazilian Carnival of Entertainment, including drummers and Samba by Dance Brasil, along with a festival of food, drink, music and dance.  It’s a high-energy, three-hour, non-stop performance of incredible talent.

Highlighting the event will be the Atlanta Showstoppers, a 12-piece band considered one of the best in the South.

Rain or shine, you’ll experience the Opening Ceremonies of the 2016 Olympic Games — streamed via NBC — from the world’s largest athletic stage in Rio de Janeiro.  

It’s a once in a lifetime occasion you’ll never forget.  The proceeds from Rio on Lanier benefit the newly renamed Lake Lanier Olympic Park!
