East Cobb Weekend Events: Polar Bear Run; Pope Band Recycling; Walton Chorus Fashion Show; GSO Concert; and more


From dawn to dusk on Saturday, this weekend’s East Cobb leading events on Saturday offer something for everyone.

It’s to be cold all day and all evening, led off by the 31st annual Polar Bear Run at Johnson Ferry Baptist Church (955 Johnson Ferry Road), which starts around 8 a.m. and raises funds for the church’s music mission trip. The race is one of the first local qualifiers for the Peachtree Road Race, but there are shorter races for kids, including a “Cub Run” for those ages 4-5;

Doing some winter reorganizing and cleaning out? Haul unwanted items over to Pope High School (3001 Hembree Road) between 9-4 for the Pope Band Recycling Day. The cost is $10 a car and additional charges apply for electronics and paint;

Professional organizer Linda Diamond offers tips on Decluttering Your Home from 11-12 Saturday at the East Cobb Library (4880 Lower Roswell Road);

The sun’s supposed to come out, warming things up enough for some youth sports activity. The Sandy Plains Softball Fun Day takes place from 12-2 at the organization’s fields at 2977 Gordy Parkway, and they’ll have food, fun, prizes and walk-up registration for the spring season.

Not far way, Sandy Plains Baseball is holding Instructional Clinics at Harrison Park (2653 Shallowford Road) from 11-1 for ages 9-12, and at Sweat Mountain Park (4346 Steinhauer Road) from 2:30 p.m. for ages 5-8. All participants should bring a glove, bat and helmet and arrive at least 20 minutes beforehand;

The arts take center stage Saturday night (and indoors too!). The Walton Chorus Fashion Show is themed “Reaching for the Stars,” and it’s a fundraiser that costs $18 at the door. Showtime Saturday is 6 p.m. at the Walton auditorium (1590 Bill Murdock Road);

The Georgia Symphony Orchestra will performs a “Musical Mirrors Concert” at 8 p.m. Saturday at the Lassiter Concert Hall (2601 Shallowford Road, photo above). Works by Franz Schubert are featured, and the ticket prices range from $10-$25.
