For the second contest of the 4th day, we asked our fans to send in snapshots of their funniest faces, and we picked our favorite to win 2 tickets to LanierWorld!
Drew Leeuwenburg had us falling out of our chairs we were laughing so hard!
Keeping with the “20” theme, next we asked you to send in pictures of yourself from 20 years ago – can you believe that was only 1993??
Heather Merritt Chapman won the prize with this picture! The floral print, the short tie, the white jacket, so 90s!
Granted, this says Day 5, but we meant Day 6, and our followers didn’t seem to mind…
In fact, Kenna Lemon was so focused on drawing this amazing dream sand castle that she didn’t notice at all!
Brittney Freeman Bowen won our first Zooma! contest by being the first to correctly guess all five images!
Day 8 was a photo caption contest, which Kathy Connor won with this cute quote! These are Lake Lanier’s newest Canadian Geese, by the way, and so cute! They’re at that awkward teenager stage…
Danielle Chiu Liu really knew her stuff when we asked what the 4 islands that make up Lake Lanier Islands are called! They are Pine, Blue Ridge, Legacy, and Georgia!
Day 10 was one for the dogs. We asked you to dress your pooch up in a swimsuit and post the picture to our wall!
There were a ton of hilarious pooches, but Shelly Jordan’s Scruffy here won the day. He just looks like a lake dog, doesn’t he?
We gave away 2 shots in our Hole-In-One Challenge on Day 10 – one for posting a picture of yourself on the Legacy on Lanier Golf course, and one for knowing that after Sam Snead, Tiger Woods has the most PGA tour wins!
On Day 11, we asked you to tell us what LanierWorld is greater than, and Nicole Vaughn Grisaffe said “LanierWorld is greater than a water balloon fight with all your friends on a hot hot summer day!” And we were inclined to agree!
Michelle Leigh Cagle won a round of golf for 2 by finding our secret hidden code somewhere on our website! The code was LXJ4R7H1P982XFDL0!
Day 13 was another photo caption contest! Connie Wishon Johnson won with a “Go big or go home!”
On Day 14, we asked you to find Bucky in the crowd at the Peachtree Road Race and tell us what number he was wearing!
See if you can spot him, Tiffany Roddy did!
Day 15 was fun, we set up a jumble and puzzle for you, and Stephanie Crowder Weber solved it first!
We held a race between Bucky the Beaver and the Chick-fil-A cow on the 16th day! We asked you to like the post to vote for the cow, and to comment on the post to vote for Bucky. It was a sad day here at the Lake when the home team lost, but Gail Castleberry went home happy as part of the winning team!
Day 17 fell on Independence Day, and we asked you to show your patriotic pride on our wall!
Andrea Nalley posted the most patriotic person we’ve ever seen, and came away with one of our big prizes: an Island Club pass!!
On Day 18, we hosted Lake Lanier Idol and asked you to submit performances of your favorite summer songs!

We held another Zooma! on Day 19, and this time, Alley Lee Tiller took home a LanierWorld family four pack by correctly guessing the pictures! Fireworks, a cow’s nose, a bird’s nest, a pirate flag, and an ice cream snack!
Finally, for our grand finale, we asked you if you were ready for vacation! We wanted to see your cars packed to the roof with suitcases, towels, beach totes, pool noodles, inner tubes, and more!!
Susanne Ward won the grand prize of a Family Funtastic Package, which includes an overnight stay at Legacy Lodge, and 4 tickets to LanierWorld!

Hello! I won Day 9 of the giveaways but have not received my tickets or any communication yet. I sent a private message with my mailing address to the Lake Lanier facebook page on June 26th and then again on July 8th, but no one ever responded. How should I go about claiming the tickets? Thank you!
