As Foursquare Day rapidly approaches, the city spotlight focuses on the town of Kennesaw, Georgia. This will be Kennesaw’s first full event but second year having Mayor Mark Mathews proclaim April 16th as Foursquare Day throughout the city! Last year, the mayor made the proclamation during the Big Shanty Festival; this year, the proclamation expands into an event.
With the City Council meeting on the same night, the mayor has invited foursquare fans and users to take part in the proclamation at the beginning of the council meeting! He also plans to repeat the proclamation at the outdoor event itself (weather permitting). As for the celebration, foursquare users will celebrate along with the Dinner at the Depot event that takes place each and every Monday evening. The celebration will include food trucks vendors Champion Cheesesteaks, Happy Belly, Cajun John’s, and King of Pops from 5pm until 8pm. We will be passing out some foursquare swag and displaying the Worldwide Virtual 4sqDay coverage thanks to ScreenScape!
Last but certainly not least, the 4sqKennesaw group has taken a note from Atlanta’s successful 2011 celebration by teaming up with MUST Ministries, a great local non-profit organization, for a Check-in for Charity pledge drive!
On behalf of the Kennesaw (and surrounding) foursquare community, have a very Happy Foursquare Day!
