Weekend Events Nov. 22 – 24

Things are slowing down this weekend just a tad as folks prepare for Thanksgiving and Hanukkah. But there’s still plenty to enjoy: A healthy eating event and book release for your toddler! A new skate park! Cats!!! (You’re welcome).

And, besides what’s listed here, check out this great Holiday Roundup that we posted earlier this week, which highlights activities throughout the entire Atlanta area and beyond. And of course, our Santa listing is posted here.

A New Orleans girl turned Georgia peach and stay at home mom to 2 daughters. Before taking the leap into full time mothering, I worked at at an Atlanta-based advertising agency.
