Since its inception as a small park in 1990, Dixieland Amusement Park has grown to include more than 20 rides and attractions for kids and parents alike. From high-flying cable coasters to speedy go-karts, the park's attractions foster adrenaline-fueled joy, while the Digital Armory, a bustling arcade, transports visitors to a virtual world with motion sensors and laser tag. Dining areas pepper the park's walkways for between-ride snacks, and, come nightfall, fireworks fill the sky to entertain visitors and idling pigeons.

ArtWorks on the Square inspires the creatively disposed with a variety of classes, workshops, and events. Encourage your inner artisan with a Vino Van Gogh Night class, which offers a night of painting, conversing, and wine drinking from 7 p.m.–9 p.m. on the second Friday of every month. Each vinely inclined class can accommodate up to 12 students and is led by a professional canvas caresser, who issues step-by-step instructions to help keep brush strokes on the straight and narrow and prevent students from accidentally painting a hole in the universe.

The Georgia State Fair is rooted in tradition. The state's celebration of all things agriculture and seasonal fun began in 1846, and since then, tens of thousands of people have flocked through its gates each year. What exactly do they find? Depending on the day or hour, a Mexican duranguense group might be getting the crowd dancing or a tribute group might be recreating Rolling Stones hits such as There Ain't No Moss on Me. Other areas of the grounds host livestock competitions?including a junior heifer show?while a step in a different direction might land you inside a maze of mirrors. That's just one of the fair's midway attractions, which include kid-friendly speed boats, a Zyklon roller coaster for thrill-seekers, and a circus train for the whole family.

As the sun sets and darkness blankets the city, runners, joggers, and walkers of all ages run, jog, or walk through the Neon Dash, a luminescent jaunt that benefits a chosen charity partner. To the soundtrack of adrenaline-boosting tunes, participants clad in white T-shirts make their way through a glowing foam and bubble zone and four glow zones, each filled with volunteers armed with a different color of intense UV neon. Once across the finish line, they'll attend the After Glow Party, which bathes them in the otherworldly illumination of black lights and the accompanying joy of wearing a self-satisfied smile as they play games and enjoy entertainment for the rest of the night.

There's no better way to cool down on a run than throwing some water on your face or, in the case of Drenched 5K, speeding through a misting tunnel, traversing a sprinkler minefield, navigating a foam zone, and zooming down a 100-foot slip 'n' slide. In cities across the country, participants of all fitness levels can hit the pavement during a soaking-wet sprint that culminates in an after-party with drinks, entertainment, and a huge water balloon fight inspired by Songkran, Thailand's soggy New Year's celebration. After the race, participants take home their race T-shirts and sunglasses. A portion of the proceeds goes toward local charities.

Crowds of people wearing white T-shirts, tutus, and old wedding dresses race through the streets during the Funk N Run 5k. They wear white because a rainbow of colors will pelt their clothing during the event. It's not totally necessary to wear white, though; the colored-cornstarch dye will show up on garments of all hues, including black yoga pants. This untimed, noncompetitive race is known for its celebratory party atmosphere, but that's not the only reason to attend; the charitable event also works to give soldiers and their families memorable homecoming experiences.
