Alma's Goldwasswer Park serves as a center for community activities and festivals during the year, including the annual Georgia Blueberry Festival in June, possibly Bacon County's biggest attraction. The two-day festival celebrates everything blueberry, with pie eating contests, pancakes, music, dancing, arts and crafts, and more.
Other days of the year, catch a play, a first run movie, beauty pageant, dance recital, or speaker at the Bacon Theatre in the heart of downtown Alma. Or you can pay your respects at the Veterans Memorial Wall and get a photo of the military helicopter on display.
