Traffic deaths have increased to an average of 100 a month. At this rate, Georgia could see the first annual increase in nine years! We’re sounding the alarm about this epidemic of crashes and fatalities, many of which are preventable.
The countdown to Friday, June 5th has begun, when Downtown Duluth transforms into an epicurean adventure for dining enthusiasts! After the wildly successful 2014 introduction of Food Truck Friday, this weekly summer event returns and combines with Fridays-N-Duluth and Flicks on the Bricks.
