Join us at Lake Benson Park (921 Buffaloe Road) Saturday for a homecoming parade and concert featuring Scotty McCreery!
People should plan to be at the park no later than NOON if they want to participate in all of the Scotty homecoming events. The parade starts in front of the park on Buffaloe, turns into park and ends near the stage area.
Pets, tents and coolers will NOT be allowed in the park. No RVs will be permitted to enter the park. Parking shuttles will be available 10 a.m.-5 p.m. at Bryan Farm, located at 1832 New Bethel Church Road. RVs can park at this site. Food and non-alcoholic beverages will be sold at the event.
The Greater Raleigh Convention and Visitors Bureau has created this very helpful webpage for people thinking about visiting Garner for the Scotty homecoming.
