This weekend, I had a chance to take the family to the Atlanta Fair at Turner Field! First of all, I LOVE the going to the fair. Remember my earlier post about Things from my childhood I insist my kids experience? Well, I left this one off. I used to go every year in NY at (formerly) Shea Stadium and oh the memories…
I think my kids have are probably starting to form the same good memories of the Atlanta Fair. What do you think?
The Atlanta Fair will be in town only for another week – until April 2nd. Here’s what you need to know:
National Walk in the Park Day – Wednesday, March 30.
To honor the holiday, Atlanta’s favorite fair encourages everyone to get moving and step outside under the bright sun shine and blue skies! The first 102 guests to embrace the movement will receive a free unlimited ride armband upon entry! Whether walking through the fairgrounds admiring the city skyline, twirling and swirling in the fresh air on the Tornado or gliding through the spring breeze on the Ring of Fire, guests can expect to celebrate the holiday in a variety of exhilarating fair-filled ways!
