As summer continues, so do the fun events (well, as long as we can get a day without rain, that is). This weekend is no exception. Take a look at some of the fun things happening around town.
Comedy all weekend long at the Village Theatre – Check out the improv shows happening Friday and Saturday – all hilarious and all $10 or less!
Atlanta Street Food Festival – Saturday, July 13, 12pm-8pm, Piedmont Park. Attendees of the inaugural Atlanta Street Food Festival will experience Atlanta’s best food trucks while enjoying music from a variety of local bands. The event benefits the Atlanta Community Food Bank and has already raised enough money to purchase more than $42,000 worth of groceries for needy families. The festival is free to enter, but attendees must purchase a $10.50 ticket (discount available for 3 tickets) to be able to purchase food and drinks. Tickets do not include food or drink, but attendees who purchase tickets in advance will receive discounted food. Get the details and purchase tickets here.
