Labor Day: What's Going on in Atlanta?

Posted at Fri, Aug 25, 2017 7:59 AM

Labor Day Events in Smyrna, Marietta and Surrounding Area

Labor Day is a bittersweet holiday. With a long weekend and plenty of events, it feels great! On the other hand, it also signifies the end of summer's long days and constant activity stream. Although the weather becomes a little bit more hospitable, kids go back to school and we all have to start thinking about holiday shopping.  Summer is great, and saying goodbye to it stinks.  Lucky for us, the Atlanta area is full of great ways to spend this final summer holiday. Here are some great ways we can spend the long weekend and holiday hours! 

Art in the Park – Marietta 

Catch some great, original art and crafts in an expansive outdoor venue for Marietta's Art in the Park. This celebration lasts from Saturday through Monday and features local and national artists with a variety of fine arts on display at the historic Marietta Square downtown Marietta.   Art in the Park also features Chalk Spot, where artists of all ages can show off their artistic abilities on the spot, a food truck row and a convenient walk to museums and galleries downtown. More information about this event can be found on the Art in the Park website by clicking here. 

19th Annual Sky High Hot Air Balloon Festival – Pine Mountain 

If you've ever wanted to go up in a hot air balloon, well you're braver than any of us! The Sky High Hot Air Balloon Festival south in Pine Mountain gives you the opportunity to witness these beautiful sky giants in flight. You even to try a tethered balloon flight yourself, but that's not really our speed.   Beginning on the first, the event goes through Labor Day and is definitely worth a stop. You can get more information on admission at the Sky High Hot Air Balloon Festival by clicking here.
