Atlanta can have the perfect weather in fall, with sunny, comfortable temperatures during the day and crisp, cool evenings. Here at Got Bugs?, we love making the most of this time of year and taking advantage of all that Atlanta has to offer. From film festivals to Halloween parades, we’re lucky to live in a city that truly knows how to celebrate the best season of the year. Here are some festivities we highly recommend bringing friends and family to, and maybe we’ll see you there!
Chomp & Stomp Festival
On November 7th, the 13th annual Chomp & Stomp Festival will be held at Cabbagetown Park. The day will include a 5k race, live music from local talent, an art exhibit, chili cook-off, various Cabbage Games, great food, and, well, lots of beer. We’re hoping this year is as successful as last year when 24,000 people came!
Boo at the Zoo
If the Pumpkin Festival left you wanting more family fun, check out this festive event. On October 24th, 25th, and 31st, get the kids dressed up in their favorite costume and head down to Zoo Atlanta. There will be costume contests, trick-or-treating through the zoo, a corn maze, and an exclusive look at some of the zoo’s creepiest animals. If you’re an Atlanta resident, you get in free!
Netherworld Haunted House
What’s now considered a landmark for Halloween festivities in Atlanta, this haunted house is something you won’t want to miss. With amazing monsters, live actors, and incredible special effects, this is an attraction that will appeal to the ghoul in you. That is, if you’re brave enough.
Chastain Park Arts Festival
Over 180 artists and artisans will be coming together November 7th and 8th at Chastain Park for its sixth annual event. With live music, great food, a children’s area, and, of course, a whole lot of art, this festival will have something for everyone! Bring your friends and appreciate Atlanta’s local artists celebrating their passion.
Here are some other fun things to check out in and around the Atlanta area:
- Scarecrows in the Garden
- IrishFest Atlanta
