Your Middle GA Events: '90s Groove & Wine In Perry This Weekend!

Jun 3, 2016

This weekend you can go back to the 90s, and head on over to Perry for some fabulous wine! It’s time to talk about all the fun things you can get out and do and with some ideas, we have Jackie K. Cooper, a film critic with the Huffington Post and local harpist Betsy Fitzgerald.

Here are Betsy’s items for this week's show: Library Ballroom '90s Extravaganza!
