We are falling more and more in love with Atlanta, especially with all of these fall events coming up!

With festivals, pumpkin patches, corn mazes, and more, you’re sure to find something fun to do this fall season. Here’s your guide to fall festivities in Atlanta!

Stone Mountain Park hosts it’s annual Pumpkin Festival for another year! This event is popular with all ages and has proved to be a family-friendly must-do in Atlanta during the fall season! 

The Pumpkin Festival has attractions, such as a treetop obstacle course, entertainment, decorations, shows, games, a scenic train ride, a 4-D movie experience, and more.

Play by day and glow by night as the park lights up all of the decorations! You will not want to miss out on a magical night here at Stone Mountain.
