Similar to the way a triathlon tests an athlete’s physical fitness through three athletic challenges, the TriMathlon tests a mathlete’s mental fitness through three exciting math challenges. Each challenge is tailored by grade with questions starting easier and progressively increasing in difficulty. All participants receive fun goody bags, a certificate of participation, and earn money for local schools. The top three scorers in each grade level at each center will receive additional medals and prizes. To register, visit www.mathnasiumtrimathlon.com.

Marietta Zombie Walk. 5pm – 7:30pm. Meet at Glover Park after the festival. Carnival Of Doom is once again sponsoring the 4th Annual Marietta Zombie Walk benefiting those in need within our local community. All proceeds and collected food from the Marietta Zombie Walk goes directly to MUST Ministries in their mission to help local humans in need. This year, we are truly excited to be part of the Marietta Harvest Square Arts & Crafts Festival and  some  fun  post-walk activities are in the plans for Glover Park to entertain the undead even more. Admission is free, but bring a cash or canned donation for MUST Ministries.

I have lived in Smyrna for almost 10 years and am still not sure how I managed to find a job more chaotic and unpredictable than advertising.
