Things to know for Warner Robins concert

Get ready for good food, music and fireworks.

Friday is the annual Warner Robins Independence Day celebration, where 15,000 people are expected to come out and enjoy the show.

There are some new traditions are starting this year.

Instead of its usual location at McConnell-Talbert Stadium, the event will be at the Museum of Aviation.

The stage is almost all set.

"Every year, the objective is to put on a world-class concert for the folks in Middle Georgia to enjoy," says Chrissy Miner, one of the organizers. "We hope to continue that tradition this year."

With a new venue this year at the Museum of Aviation, even long-time concert goers might have to plan ahead.

Parking will be in front of Anchor Glass, with a separate handicap lot on Booth Road.

Those that park in that lot will need an additional handicap ticket.

Curfew extends with new fireworks law

As of Wednesday, it's legal to shoot fireworks between 10 a.m. and midnight every day.

According to a news release from the Warner Robins Police Department, the curfew extends Friday, Saturday, New Year's Eve and New Year's Day from midnight to 2 a.m.

Fireworks may not be discharged within 100 yards of a nuclear plant or business that sells or refines gasoline products, the release states. Fireworks may also not be discharged indoors or near schools.

The new state law, the release says, preempts local city ordinances, which means the law overrides the city's noise ordinance.

Unless fireworks are being discharged within the areas or time frames mentioned, the release says the police cannot prevent people from shooting off fireworks during the allowed time frame.

Wellston Winds host Star-Spangled Concert


The sounds of patriotism filled the air in Warner Robins Wednesday night. The Wellston Winds hosted a Star-Spangled Concert at the Museum of Aviation.

The all-volunteer group is a community wind ensemble made up of musicians from throughout the community.

It includes everyone from high schoolers, to music teachers, and even former Air Force Band members.

Tonight, the group played various patriotic favorites, from 'God Bless America,' to 'America the Beautiful.' They also paid tribute to former service members with an armed services melody.

Officers say plan ahead for concert traffic

We are just a few days away from the much-anticipated Warner Robins Independence Day Celebration.

For the first time, the event will be held at the Museum of Aviation.

There are a few things to remember, though, so you spend more time enjoying the music and less time stuck in traffic.

"We've had to re-invent the wheel for this event," says Assistant Chief of Warner Robins Police, John Wagner.

With a new location, that meant a change in plans for traffic and patrol.

"Expect traffic delays," says Wagner. "That's 15,000 folks going to one place."

Parking will be in the field in front of Anchor Glass along with a handicap lot on Booth Road.

"It's not a place to sit and tailgate," he explains. "You're not allowed to bring your grill out there."

There are two ways to enter the parking area:

Centerville celebrates 4th of July early


The rain cleared out of Central Georgia in time for an early Fourth celebration for the folks in Centerville. The city hosted its 2nd annual Independence Day Celebration Tuesday night.

Hundreds gathered outside of city hall to celebrate the upcoming holiday.

People were able to enjoy many different food vendors, live entertainment from local acts and the headlining group, The Swingin' Medallions.

Children got their faces painted, jumped in a bounce house, and even tried to dunk a fireman in the dunk tank.

Organizing Your Photos: Create a Backup System

Organizing Your Photos: Create a Backup System

If you get only one thing from all of my organizing your photos posts, please let it be that you need to create a backup system for your photos, both printed and digital. If your home were to burn down or your computer was stolen, you could replace physical things like a TV or a laptop but you cannot replace the photos of your family vacations and your Dad’s last birthday. Those pictures are how we capture and memorialize the fleeting moments of our lives. To have them disappear forever in the blink of an eye is heart wrenching.
