What to do in ATL this Fall

Fall in Atlanta is one of the BEST times of year to be outside and enjoy everything the city has to offer! The humidity and mosquitoes are gone and city is filled with crisp, cool air and changing leaves. This time of year many neighborhoods host a variety of events meant to bring the community together to enjoy the weather together! 

Below you will find a list of several events taking place in different neighborhoods in the city! Hopefully from this list you can create a bucket list of activities to do this Fall!
