I received this email and wanted to let you know what was going on at the Mall of Georgia this summer. When I think of the mall, I tend to think of window shopping or going to grab what I need to get in and out. (At least that is how it was at our local mall back home.) Now, the malls up here puts on all sorts of fun events and it can be a planned trip for more than just shopping. Here are two cool things getting ready to happen at the Mall of Georgia this summer:
