What’s Good This Weekend

By October 28, 2016 No Comments

What’s good this weekend, Atlanta? As we all know, our fair city has a plethora of rad ways for folks to have fun and give back. Rock out with your costumes out and show us your Halloween spirit. Tag us so we can see your Halloween spirit glow using the hashtag #whatsgoodthisweekend.

Here are a few ways to bust out that Harley Quinn costume and give back:

fernbank-fright-night

Friday, 7pm-11pm: Martinis and IMAX ‘Fright Night’

It’s time for Fernbank’s annual adult Halloween party: Fright Night! For a devilish cover deal of $8, you can hobnob under dinosaur bones and sip from a cocktail menu that includes libations like Tell-Tale Heart and Salem’s Lot. There will be two different IMAX film screenings and a “freakishly funny costume contest.” Get those fangs ready, y’all.

climate-march

Saturday, 12pm-3pm: People’s Climate March to the Polls

With the election looming close, there is both real urgency around climate action and serious panic about long poll lines on Election Day. People’s Climate March to the Polls aims to address both of those concerns with a public march to galvanize support around climate change that ends at a DeKalb County polling station. Costumes and a passion for bringing about real environmental change are highly encouraged.

Saturday, 5pm-9pm: Buford Highway Halloween Parade & Pop-Up

Bet you’ve never shopped, paraded and trick-or-treated down the most delicious street in America*. We Love BuHi and POP ATL are giving Atlanta the chance to celebrate Halloween on Buford Highway and you bet it will be a good time. The festivities include a pop-up park, Halloween costume parade and trick-or-treating at local businesses. Bonus points if you come with lights, a homemade mask, kites or musical instruments.

bbq-and-dog-costume-contest

Sunday, 11am-1:30pm: Halloween BBQ + Doggy Costume Contest

It is no secret that we love animals in costumes here at Gather Good (check out our Instagram post from the Freedombarkway Dog Park Fundraiser). So we are especially excited about this event because not only will there be phenomenal barbecue, market veggies, local desserts and fresh apple cider for sale, but there will also be a doggy costume contest. And best of all, proceeds from the event will go to help the Westside Farmers Market double its SNAP program!
