MARIETTA - Join the Marietta Museum of History for this special Evening Edition of our popular Remember When Club! This month’s event will take place on the 4th floor of the historic Strand Theatre on the Marietta Square!

The Ramblin' Raft Race was an annual Memorial Day weekend event in Atlanta on the Chattahoochee River that lasted from 1969 to 1980. At its peak, more than 300,000 rafters partook in the race. Amid increasing environmentalism, the race was cancelled. The race was associated with consumption of alcohol and illegal drugs, both by the rafters and the thousands of spectators that lined a route that began in Sandy Springs and ended in Vinings. Even though the race was forced to an end, a strong legacy remains in the creation of the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area.

Our panelists this month will include former Turner Broadcasting on-air personality Bill Tush, WQXI radio personality Gary McKee and Turner Broadcasting production employee Dick Dodson. Please RSVP to [email protected]

Where: The Earl and Rachel Smith Strand Theatre, 117 North Park Square, Marietta GA 30060
