The city of Hinesville is celebrating Georgia Cities Week through Sunday by participating in a variety of events throughout the week, including a special-themed Farmers Market Thursday.
Hosted by the Hinesville Downtown Development Authority from 4-7 p.m. in Bradwell Park, guests at the Georgia Cities Week Farmers Market can stroll through a display of city vehicles, including a fire truck, police car and city bus. Children can color crafts in the city tent, where participants can also pick up free tote bags or coozies while supplies last.
