Things to do in Atlanta October 9th - 12th

Looking for things to do in Atlanta this weekend? Consider this your go-to guide for wining, dining and celebrating your way through one of the greatest cities in the south. I had to officially put the heat on in my car this weekend and it made me realize how few precious weeks we have left until winter. With that being said, that alone should be reason enough to partake in some of the fall festivities happening this weekend in Atlanta. A Greek and Roman festival bring us to another part of the world, while a neon dash brings us back home. Plenty to do and plenty of people to do it with. Happy weekend!
