2022 Special Events start with the all new Shamrock the Park, weekends March 19-27. The event will feature live Celtic music, bagpipe players and drummers, kids activities and traditional Irish dishes.

“Shamrock the Park is a brand new event that will really showcase some of the recent additions to Wild Adventures, including the new Water’s Edge Brews & Bites,” said Vigue.

Water’s Edge will serve gourmet pretzels, select wines and locally brewed beer through a partnership with Georgia Beer Company. The new location also features new covered seating around the park’s lake and a stage for live music.

“We’ll be hiding over 100,000 candy-filled eggs in April during Pounce & Crunch’s Easter Eggstravaganza, extending park hours and live music during Sweet Summer Nights in June and July, and offering free military admission during the Celebrate America Festival,” said Vigue.
