AMERICUS – Everyone is invited to the Hurricanes Kickoff Celebration on the Georgia Southwestern State University campus. It was scheduled to take place on Thursday, September 17, but has been rescheduled to take place on Thursday, October 1.

It’ll be an evening of fun with a carnival feel that will culminate with an amazing fireworks show.

There will be free activities for kids of all ages spaced across multiple fields starting at 6:30 p.m., along with the opportunity to learn more about and join Canes 360. This event is open to the public.

Please note that the street between the GSW soccer & softball complexes will be closed (from the intersection at Anthony Drive down to Felder Street). For those driving in, parking options will be the Storm Dome and the lot behind the Carter I and Carter II buildings.

We will continue to follow the University’s safety guidelines for this event regarding social distancing and mask wearing while offering hand-sanitizing stations.
