Attendees enjoying booths at LOABA’s 2016 Big Event.
Delaney and Abby Myers raised $220 selling cupcakes to benefit Circle of Friends Animal Society.

It was a picture perfect day on Saturday, March 19th for the 13th Annual Big Event, the Lake Oconee Area Builders Association’s (LOABA) biggest event of the year. The Big Event promotes the association members as well as provides an opportunity for the community to share what they have to offer. The purpose of the festival is to educate and inform the community of what Lake Oconee area has to offer.

A big thank you to the sponsors: Plumbing Distributors Inc., BankSouth, Camden Homes, Fireside Outdoor Kitchens, Metro Water Filter International, Michael’s Window Treatments, Netplicity, LLC, Reynolds Lake Oconee, Wilson Bryant Air Conditioning. We would also like to thank our event supporters: BankSouth Mortgage, Dalton Carpet One of Lake Oconee, Daniel Custom Construction, LLC, DreamBuilt, LLC, Farmers & Merchants Bank, Jones & Jones Premier Builders, TOMAC Builders, LLC, Window Wizardz.

LOABA also needs to thank the people behind the scenes who work tirelessly all year to make this event a huge success: Wendy Myers, Executive Officer, Harry Case, Chairman, Tim Askew, Georgia Classic Cruisers, as well as over 20 other volunteers.

It was a pleasure to walk around and visit over 125 vendors and receive overwhelming positive feedback in regards to changing locations as well as expansion of the event. The kids zone expanded this year adding USTA’s Sport Court for Youth. LOABA is fortunate to be able to showcase the members of the Association as well as community businesses in an outdoor venue where large crowds can gather and enjoy an afternoon of fun and entertainment with their families.
