Family Fun for Labor Day Weekend

If you are staying close to home for Labor Day, there are plenty of fun events happening around town this weekend!

The AJC Decatur Book Festival, one of the largest independent book festivals in the nation, showcases dozens of incredible authors and their stories. Head to Downtown Decatur this weekend to enjoy author readings, panel discussions, book signings, and writing workshops covering a wide range of genres. Kids will love the interactive children’s area, parade, cooking demonstrations, and live music. The festival runs from 10 am to 6 pm on Saturday and noon to 6 pm on Sunday. All activities, with the exception of the sold-out keynote and kidnote addresses, are free! For more information, visit the event website.

Take the family to Stone Mountain Park for their annual Labor Day celebration, happening throughout the weekend! The Lasershow Spectacular will take place nightly Saturday through Monday, followed by an epic fireworks show. Visit the 4-D Theater to enjoy comedy and ventriloquism from Todd Oliver, as seen on season 7 of America’s Got Talent. He will be accompanied by Irving, a real talking dog! While you’re at the park, enjoy a variety of activities available year-round, including the Summit Skyride, Skyhike, Geyser Towers, train ride, and more.
