My grandfather and uncle use to lease the land where Lake Kedron is now....some of those $400,000+ houses around still have the old tree stands and spikes in the trees....we'd get a deer and parade around main street in Jonesboro before taking it to t&t....

That brings back the memory of getting ten bucks for my birthday and spending 8 dollars and change on the vanilla ice tape. I can remember wearing the neon plastic sunglasses and nodding my head to the beat and singing ICE ICE BABY... too cold too cold.

Ohhh and all this was in the passenger side of my moms dodge daytona cruizin down tara blvd with the windows rolled down. man was I cool. lol

One other thing which wasnt that long ago was when hooters burned down. That was a tragic day!

You know you're getting old when you can remember the rock concerts at lake Spivey. To name a couple Grand Funk, Chicago. Remember the Pop Fest. at A.I.R. before it was Atlanta Motor Speedway? Remember when the Kiwanis had the skating rink in Forest Park, or when Butch's was just a trailer and a certain organization met there every Sat. night ? Man I do and those sure were good times but all I can say is I'm glad I don't live in Clayton County now !!!!

That's where I grew up at. All farm and pasteur land back then. Rural pretty much. We would walk to MZ Babtist Church on Sunday mornings. I got good and skint up on that hill going down to Valley hill I think it was........I remember when they built I-75. There was a dirt road across the construction zone until the overpass for MZ Blvd. was
finished. I used to hang out at Southway and the Goldmine , Indian lake and the waterpark in lake city....

never knew they had them there. I could kick myself in the butt for not knowing about them.

What years did these groups play at Spivey, in the 70's?

I grew up in Forest Park and remember: dirt roads around Hendrix Dr Elementary School, the Sat. mattinee at the Forest Park theatre on Main St, Joy Lake, stopping at the Kwik Shop on Main St coming home from FP Jr High, riding my bike all over town with my brother and Mom didn't have to worry about us. Boy am I showing my age here! I moved away in the 70's and am glad I did but those were some good days.

I believe there was a Carroll's hamburger joint in Forest Park that was a big hangout for a while. That was the first hamburger place I remember as a kid before McDonalds.

My grandfather was the Fielder on Fielder Rd. if anybody grew up in that area.
