Cobb County PARKS presents the second annual Outdoor Adventure Festival at the Cobb County Corps Property (Allatoona Creek Trails) on Saturday, August 16, 9 a.m. to noon. The Corps Property is located at 5690 Old Stilesboro Road, Acworth.

OutdoorFestival2014The free event will feature a wide range of activities. Cobb PARKS says:

Participants will enjoy outdoor recreation and conservation activities through a variety of how-to sessions. Expert facilitators will introduce participants to activities such as: archery, birding, boating safety, bicycling, trapping, fly fishing, obstacle courses, shooting sports and hunting safety. Outdoor vendors will also be on hand to show the latest and greatest outdoor products.

The festival will have bicycle, running and hiking activities. Guided hikes are planned as well as guided trail runs. Bicycle demos will be on hand to let you try out the newest bikes on the market. There will be several bicycle contests for adults and kids, including a wheelie contest, limbo, bike toss and a slow race. For those outdoors men, women and kids who like to show off two activities at once, there will be a bicycle biathlon. The bicycle biathlon will be very similar to what you would see at the Winter Olympics; of course with a bicycle instead of cross-country skis.

For more information on the festival (including vendor, exhibitor and facilitator opportunities), please contact John Purcell at or (770) 528-8825.
