As the Augusta community continues to grow, we expect more events to come for the Summer. Some of us prefer to stay at home in Augusta while others prefer to travel to nearby cities such as: Charleston, Atlanta and Savannah. So to better help you plan your upcoming Summer with your friends or family, we have created an exhaustive list for you of all family functions this Summer in Augusta!
