It’s the Weekend! October 24-26,2014:
While it’s not quite Halloween, there are already plenty of fall festivals and pumpkin parties happening! Many of our favorite Georgia sports teams are on away games (The Falcons are in London!) or on byes, and one might wonder what there is to do in Atlanta this weekend. Here are some of our favorite events going on in the city:
