Summer Festivals in Atlanta- June

It's that time of year where the sun is higher, the days are longer, and being an adult is even harder. Why we don't get summer break as an adult is beyond me, but we can at least plan ahead for those pesky work days that get in the way of our summer weekends. I don't know about you, but I'm ready to get my summer on, so that means it's time to plan and start saving. One thing that happily defines summer is a good festival. Whether it's a day long or a week long, summer festivals have become a staple of summer break. Let's get our festival face on, shall we?
