Savannah Voice Festival

Barbecues, festivals, music and more — these are the hallmarks of summer we all savor but are, bittersweetly, coming to an end.

This weekend, Savannah is ringing in August with a bang, from offering jazzy brunches on the waterfront to equipping kids with school supplies. Marianne Ganem Poppell of Savannah Master Calendar and Claire Sandow of the Tourism Leadership Council have your guide. 

Last month, investigators in Atlanta recovered about 500 pounds of methamphetamine hidden inside Disney figurines. That's worth about $2 million. Drug Enforcement Administration officials not only say that Atlanta is a hub for crystal meth distribution; according to the DEA, meth also the "No. 1 threat" in the metro area.

Savannah is known as one of America's most haunted cities. So it fits that the Savannah Voice Festival would commission an opera about ghosts. "Alice Ryley" is about the first woman hanged in Georgia. The ghost opera will return to the Savannah Voice Festival stage Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. at the Westin Savannah Harbor Ballroom.
