Are you a fan of In the Heat of the Night? Whether you are or not, downtown Covington GA is hosting the event of a lifetime on October 10th! It’s on October 10th that several of your favorite ITHOTN characters are scheduled to appear – all where the iconic TV series began many years ago.
Along with meeting some of your favorite TV characters from ITHOTN, you’ll also be able to explore downtown Covington and all that it has to offer. From 9 am to noon there will be a Meet and Greet in the beautifully historical Covington Courthouse, where you can expect to meet Alan Autry (Capt. Bubba Skinner), Maureen Dowdell (Nurse Tracy Boggs), Randall Granks (Officer Randy Goode), Afemi Omlami (Jimmy Dawes), and Dee Shaw (Cpl. Dee Shepard).
While the capacity of the above event is only 500 people, the event will be split into two sessions of 500 – however, it is still a limited space, meaning you have to come downtown early! You don’t want to miss some of the most iconic TV characters of our time. After the Meet and Greet, from 1 pm to 5 pm, there will be photo and autograph sessions on 1150 Monticello Street and a self-guided map will be available to those who want to tour some of the most famous ITHOTN locations.
At 5 pm to 7 pm, downtown Covington GA, will offer a “dine around the square,” where you can try some of the best southern food at a discount! The Mystic Grill will even be offering their very own, special “HEAT” menu. After dinner, take a stroll to the square park and enjoy the “Concert in the Park: Drive Time” which will feature some of our favorite ITHOTN songs!
