Tiny children splashed in the shallows of Lake Lanier’s red clay beaches, while others queued for the towering water slides at Frances Meadows Aquatic Center. Saturday’s sunny skies kicked off the long Memorial Day weekend, and residents throughout Hall County spent the day relaxing outdoors. Sarah Crane of Oakwood spent the day at Lanier Point Park with two of her 22 grandchildren.
