The Easter Weekend is here. And with the holiday, the number of events in-and-around Coweta County are fewer than most spring weekends.

Of course, everything seems to be scheduled for next weekend (April 26-27-28), so stay tuned.

On Friday, folks can talk American Military History at the Carnegie or take in a couple of plays in downtown Newnan – Suessical Jr., or The Drawer Boy.

On Saturday, Easter Egg Hunts take place at the McRitchie-Hollis House and Chattahoochee Bend State Park as well as an Egg Drop at East Coweta High School.

And on Easter Sunday, it’s family time. Weather-wise, Sunday will likely be the best day of the weekend with sunny skies and a high near 72 degrees. Both Friday and Saturday will be cooler. Showers will be on and off Friday with the high temp near 67. And Saturday, mostly cloudy and cool with a high of only 58.

Below is the day-to-day listing of events in the area. To have your event published, please email [email protected].

The Drawer Boy
Newnan Theatre Company presents this touching, and often hilarious, story as it follows Miles, a young actor from the big city who moves in with Morgan and Angus, aging bachelor farmers, to do research for a new play. Intrigued by the puzzling Angus who suffered brain damage during World War II, and gently tormented by Morgan because he’s a “city boy,” Miles includes an overheard story in his play and unwittingly reawakens Angus’s memory. The Drawer Boy is an elegant testimony to the transcendent nature of fiction and the healing power of truth.
