          On a Saturday night, the
        Powersville Opry presents country
        and gospel music to standing-
        room-only audiences. Music history
        fans will also want to read the
        historical marker at the former
        Middle Georgia Raceway which commemorates the
        second annual Atlanta International Pop Festival in
        1970, which showcased 30 musical acts including rock
        icon Jimi Hendrix and Macon’s Allman Brothers Band.
        The raceway was also the site of nine NASCAR Grand
        National races in the 1960s and 1970s won by such
        legends as Richard Petty, Bobby Allison, David Pearson
        and Bobby Isaac, and the location for the filming of a
        2012 Dodge Durango commercial.
          Let the kids work out some
        energy with an hour or two at
        the Party Playground Indoor
        Fun Center. This room full
        of inflatables and soft play
        equipment will let your little
        ones run, jump and play, rain   Lane Southern Orchards
        or shine. It’s also a great place
        to have a birthday party.
          Sampling and shopping are always sweet pursuits.
        Start with a visit to GeorgiaBob’s Cane River Vineyard,
        a wine tasting room and market offering Georgia-made
        and grown products. Another source for local pecans,
        pickles, jams and jellies, and peach cider is the country
        store at Barbour Farms.

        located directly off I-75, offers more than 200 dealers
        and 33,000 square-feet of antiques and collectibles.
