Fall family fun in Georgia
As summer comes to an end, and before the hustle and bustle of school activities are in full swing, take the time to plan some fall family fun! Fall is the perfect time of year for family bonding, as there are so many family-friendly activities to pick from. You’ll have trouble trying to fit them all in!
Here are five ideas to get you started:
1. North Georgia State Fair
The North Georgia annual state fair is only a few weeks away, running September 18 – 28 at the Jim R Miller Park in Marietta. From pig races, sandcastles and sea lions, there are plenty of children’s activities to choose from. Tickets are $7 for adults and free for children under 10. Discount tickets for fair entrance and rides can be purchased at all Metro Atlanta Walgreens.
2. Blue Morpho Butterfly exhibit
Come witness history in the making at the Callaway Gardens. There you’ll see the largest display of Blue Morpho butterflies in the world, during the month of September. These butterflies with their iridescent blue wings will surely create a family bonding moment to remember!
3. FLAUNT 2014: Pop It Up!
This month-long celebration, in downtown Thomasville, will bring you music, food, shopping and historically inspired murals. What’s even better is, it’ll all be in pop up form! This is a free event the whole family can enjoy. So, bring the family and Pop It Up for a night.
4. Georgia Peanut Festival
Looking for something different? Well, the Georgia Peanut Festival is it. Hosted by Sylvester-Worth County, you can expect to see the world’s largest peanut butter sandwich from 1987, among other family friendly attractions.
5. Halloween Moonlight Madness
Of course fall means Halloween. Instead of trick-or-treating in the neighborhood, create a family bonding experience the whole family can participate in. Nicholls, GA will be hosting a kid’s carnival in General Coffee State Park from 1-4 p.m. And, for the big kids (or kids at heart), there will be a haunted house and hayrides beginning at dark and run until 10 p.m.
We hope these ideas will give your family the chance to experience fall to the fullest, with unique and family friendly activities. Don’t forget to send us your pictures!
