SUNDAY APRIL 28, 2024, 4:00 pm

McFarlane Nature Park in East Cobb County
280 Farm Rd SE, Marietta, GA 30067

We will celebrate Valborgsmässoafton and the arrival of Spring with a traditional (small) bonfire.
Our plans for the afternoon starts with a performance of classic spring songs by Vasa Drängar and Ladies (make sure to arrive before 4:30pm!) followed by a picnic dinner.

This event is open to all – guests are very welcome! If you can, please bring any lawn-games you have at home: kubb, corn-hole, croquet, etc. There will also be a “tipspromenad” (quiz walk) that everyone can participate in.

The lodge will provide hot dogs (“varmkorv”) for everyone; beyond that, please plan to bring a side dish, salad, or dessert to share. You’ll also need to bring your own beverages (water, coffee, etc – no alcohol is permitted at McFarlane Park.) The lodge will bring all of the paper plates, napkins, cups, and cutlery we will need. Plan to contribute $10.00 per person (under 12yo free).

Directions: The entrance to Farm Road is about 1/3-mile west, on Paper Mill Road, of its intersection with Johnson Ferry Rd SE. **It is labelled “Gateside Place” and is the entrance to a subdivision**. Look for the left turn!; if you see “Atlanta Country Club Drive” you’ve gone too far.

Farm Road is a simple gravel driveway. After you drive in, you will come into a gravel parking area in front of the large white home. Parking is to your left in the open field. Please turn left; there are signs directing you, and park in an organized way on the grass field. Before you turn, you’ll see the main area on your right, with picnic tables and a shelter, which is where we will be.
