There’s nothing like a long weekend! Somehow that 1 extra day makes it seem like a full vacation. With Labor Day coming up, it’s time to start making plans for how you will spend your long weekend. While this weekend signifies that summer is coming to an end, it’s not over yet. There is still plenty to do around Atlanta. Here are a few fun ways to spend your Labor Day weekend in and around Atlanta.
With the dominance of Nerd Culture over the last decade or so, comic cons have become an all-out spectacle of truly epic proportions. If you count yourself among the nerd tribe, you won’t want to miss DragonCon at the Sheraton downtown. Whether you are into fantasy, manga, or just love the Avengers, DragonCon will be a super fun weekend for all. Get pictures with your favorite tv and movie stars, see some amazing handmade costumes, and geek out in good company.
Fireworks at the Mountain
For almost any big holiday, you can count on a spectacular show at Stone Mountain! Labor Day is no exception. The theme park at Stone Mountain is offering discounted passes for Labor Day weekend and will be hosting fun events throughout the whole weekend. One of the biggest and best attractions will be the fireworks show. But perhaps the most exciting part is the Jump! dog show! See incredible dogs doing their thing at the mountain.
Hot Air Balloon Festival
What is more beautiful than a pack of hot air balloons floating gently into the sky? If you are willing to go for a drive, head down to Callaway Resort & Gardens down in Pine Mountain, GA for the Labor Day Weekend Hot Air Balloon Festival. There will be live music, family-friendly activities, plenty of food, and of course, balloons! For an added thrill, take a ride yourself in a balloon basket and take in the sweeping views from far above the Earth!
