The Back to School Beach Bash at Lanier Islands

The Back to School Beach Bash at Lanier Islands is both great news and not-so-great news.

Here’s the good news:

LanierWorld — the beach, boardwalk and water park entertainment district set on the shores of Lake Lanier — hosts The Bash on Saturday, July 30, 2016 from noon to 11 p.m. with live entertainment, a movie on the Spectacular Screen and fun in the sun on more than a dozen waterslides, rides and attractions.

Here’s the not-so-great news:

Lanier Islands is open for sunbathers, beach goers and waterslide warriors the full week of August 1-7.  After that, LanierWorld will be open weekends only through Labor Day.  The final day of the 2016 season at LanierWorld will be Sunday, September 11.

Please.  Tell me you’re going to celebrate summer at LanierWorld before it ends!
