 Join me for a fun Sunday evening hike around Sandy Springs and then an optional free concert with the Rupert's Orchestra at Heritage Green. We will meet at Heritage Green on the right side when facing the stage

We will hike 3 miles at a moderate pace around the Sandy Springs area ending back at the Heritage Green. The hike will last from 5:15 pm - 6:15 pm. For those opting to stay after the hike, we will eat & socialize from 6:15 pm -7:00 when the concert begins.

Free parking is available in designated lots off Sandy Springs Place and Sandy Springs Circle. There will be Sandy Springs police directing traffic. DO NOT park in private retail establishments and centers including City Walk (Kroger) and Centre Court (formerly ACE Hardware). Towing will be enforced. View the parking map at .

For those staying for the concert ~ Arrive before 5:00 pm when the gates open. Allow enough time to park & walk to the gate. We will then set up our chairs / blankets on the right side facing the stage & leave them with our coolers while we hike. We need to be set up before the hike which begins promptly at 5:15 pm.

The Rupert's Orchestra concert is from 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. and is located at Heritage Green on The Sandy Springs Society Entertainment Lawn. Concerts by the Springs is presented free of charge by Heritage Sandy Springs. Attendees are welcome to bring camping/beach chairs and blankets. Picnic baskets and coolers are welcomed. Additional food will be available for purchase from specialty food food trucks (1 food truck & 1 dessert truck (ice cream & popcicles)). Kroger is just across the street if you want to purchase food & drinks. Beer, wine, sodas, and water will be available for sale, with proceeds benefiting Heritage Sandy Springs. You can also bring your own beverages but remember to drink responsibly. I will bring a vegetable platter with dip for all to share.

The Rupert's Orchestra is a twelve-piece dance band that formed in 1987 to open Rupert’s Nightclub in Atlanta, Georgia. For over eight years they played to packed houses and were voted Atlanta’s best house band every year. They have now focused their attention on the corporate and private events market.

With an eclectic repertoire of more than 1500 songs, The Rupert's Orchestra performs everything from current Top 40 hits to Motown and Classic Rock to the 1940s Big Band Sound. Their show is flashy and highly interactive. Party-goers of all ages find a lot to like and get caught up in the fun.
