As we end one season and enter another, it doesn’t mean we have to say goodbye to those outdoor events we love so much. In Atlanta, where you’ll feel summer weather until mid-November, a handful of fun and culturally driven events take place during the fall. Here are five events that you need to check out this season whether you’re a born and raised ATLien, a new transplant or visiting for the weekend. We have something for everybody!
