Two-Wheeled Action Coming to Dahlonega in September

Get your bicycle ready because Dahlonega temperatures have cooled and University of North Georgia students are back – two sure signs that September and early autumn is nearly upon us. September in Dahlonega means that the Six Gap Century & Three Gap Fifty Bicycle Ride -- one of the premier bicycle rides in the Southeast, maybe even in the nation – is right around the corner.

Shrek the Musical – Don’t Miss It!

Shrek the Musical – Don’t Miss It!

Shrek – the movie was great, sure. Michael Myers did a pretty cool Scottish brogue as Shrek, Eddie Murphy’s Donkey was hilarious, especially the bray laugh, and Cameron Diaz was lovely, even animated. Believe it or not, Dahlonega’s Holly Theater rendition of Shrek the Musical is just as good or better and the brilliance of excellent directing, fine acting, wonderful music and a remarkable – and enormous -- ensemble cast makes this a performance not to be missed.

Miner Mike Is the Real (Gold) Deal

"It was back in the 80's when I first came to Dahlonega from Greensboro, North Carolina and panned for gold at the Smith House. It was then that I knew I had caught gold fever."
