Friends and neighbors, the summer has come to an end, but family activities are still rolling on into the fall. Residents in many of our communities can still enjoy outdoor events, most of which are FREE and close to your home. Let’s take a look at what’s happening throughout the month of September around metro Atlanta.
If you live at Park Overlook in Decatur, you are in the place to be for live music. Downtown Decatur Square welcomes everyone to visit the area for weekly free concerts. Blue Sky Concerts are every Wednesday during the 12pm-1pm lunch hour. Take in a free music break with a to-go lunch from a nearby restaurant. What a great way to get away from the office.
