To say this past year has been boring would be an understatement! Most people were quarantining themselves without any contact with others for weeks. Everything was closed, and there was nothing to do. A year later, and the pandemic is still prevalent, but calming down; which means businesses are opening back up, and people are finally ready to get back out there. Gwinnett is finally planning some exciting and fun events for the upcoming year!
