The Frolic is among South Georgia’s longest running community
festivals. The event was started by the Lanier County Lions Club on
Labor Day, 1971, as a one-day event. Through the years the Frolic has
grown to include diverse entertainment over as many as seven days. The
40-year-old frolic includes the Country Music Show, Miss Fall Frolic
Beauty Pageant, the Dawg-Gone Good Race (5k and 1-Mile Run), and
Flatlanders Arts & Crafts Show. The Lions Club continues as the overall
sponsor of the frolic. Flatlander Arts & Crafts Show attracts artists
and craftsmen from across Georgia and other nearby states. Now produced
by the Lakeland-Lanier County Chamber of Commerce, the outdoor exhibition
features special activities for children, a variety of food and beverages,
and stage entertainment at intervals.
