Reviews from Past Attendees

If you're not here, you're missing one of the greytest Greyhound events in the South.
Y'all come, ya hear.


The best event you could ever attend. Friendly folks, fun activities, lots of socializing with out of state friends and many beautiful Greyhounds. Where else would you want to be?


Love this event. It is the best Greyhound event ever. Well run, lots of planned activities with well thought out alternatives just in case Mother Nature doesn't cooperate. Been attending since second year.


Can't wait until next year! We always have a great time. Everyone is so nice and the event is extremely well organized. The volunteers really go above and beyond to make everything nice for the attendees.
