Celebrate Fall with Scarecrows, Ale, Goblins and More at the Atlanta Botanical Garden

Enjoy the cooler days and nights of October at the Atlanta Botanical Garden, where fall serves up a harvest of fun events.

From October 4 - 29, both the Atlanta and Gainesville gardens will be stuffed with some 100 scarecrows created by artists, designers, schools, businesses and families for Scarecrows in the Garden. Participants compete for prizes in one of two design categories: professional and nonprofessional.

On Thursday evenings at the Atlanta garden, visitors can explore the scarecrows under the glare of flashlights (which they are encouraged to bring) during Fest-of-Ale. Each week from 5 - 9 p.m. the beer fest features a variety of fine specialty ales at cash bars and live musical entertainment. On the night of October 26, check out the Great Pumpkin-Carving Contest.

For youngsters, harvest-themed activities will be on tap on weekends from 10 a.m.-4 p.m., and on Sunday, Oct. 22 they can don their favorite costumes for a day of treats and activities during Goblins in the Garden, held at both gardens from 10 a.m.-4 p.m.For information, visit atlantabg.org.
