Sand, beach volleyball and live music helped transform downtown Griffin into a beach scene for Saturday’s June Jam, the city’s annual kickoff to its summer activities.

More than 1,000 people attended this year’s June Jam, where more than 60 tons of sand filled the block of Solomon Street in front of Imperial Theatre Park.

June Jam featured live music from The Goodwood Band of Barnesville and 12 food and beverage vendors.

Before June Jam began at 6 p.m., visitors to downtown Griffin enjoyed Second Saturday specials throughout the day at downtown businesses and at the Georgia Grown Downtown Market.

The market, held in the fire bay at Historic City Hall, featured local farmers and crafters.

“So many fun things are happening downtown this summer. We want to encourage everyone to take advantage of the summer’s free events,” Danielle Hancock, Griffin’s communications coordinator, said. “There is something for everyone with the Summer Concert Series, All American Summer (July’s Second Saturday), Ice Cream Stroll (August’s Second Saturday) and Movies in the Park.”
