  • Georgia Renaissance Festival
    In a huge English village in Fairburn, roughly 13 miles southwest of the Hartsfield-Jackson Airport, this 30th annual festival teems with life, noise, and the PG-13 debauchery of nearly 1,000 costumed rakes, harlequins, ne'er-do-wells, knights, wenches, and the ever unpredictable royal treasury accountants. Catch jousting, falconry shows, and surprise inquisitions to make sure you're having a good time. Take up a sword and have a blast repressing the local Irish, or dress up your niece and nephew for a crusade to bring endless laughter and good times to frowny infidels.

  • Noccalula Falls Park
    Reservations/Appointments: Optional Established: 1996 Staff Size: 50+ people Average Duration of Services: 2?4 hours Parking: Parking lot Handicap Accessible: Yes Recommended Age Group: All Ages Most Popular Attraction/Offering: Train ride Locals agree that the best was to take in Noccalula Falls Park's natural beauty with a ride on The C. P. Huntington Train. The train wends its way through park grounds, taking guests between the outdoor animal habitat?home to a lion, a lynx, and foxes, to name a few?and the deer park, home to 10-point buck named Rambo. The locomotive chugs by Pioneer Village, a collection of rough-hewn log buildings assembled in the style of early settlements. The trek concludes by the park's miniature golf course, which uses natural rock formations, waterfalls, and streams to add challenge to its 18 holes, rather than showcasing a less friendly challenge that goes through the lion's habitat.

  • Mills Entertainment
    Seasoned boat captains and crustacean prospectors Sig Hansen, Johnathan Hillstrand, and Andy Hillstrand gather to share with audience members their tales of struggle and survival during crab season on the high seas, as partly documented by the Discovery Channel’s Deadliest Catch. Fishing the Bering Sea in the middle of winter demands strong wills—which can come together in times of treacherous weather and 100-foot waves or come to blows about who performs better in the three-legged crabwalk race. Selected audience members will also have the chance to don the survival suits from the Time Bandit. Following the story-swapping and previously unreleased video footage, greenhorns and avid fans will have the opportunity to launch questions at the captains, wave giant foam claws, and learn how to communicate in claw-snap Morse code.

  • Bjcc
    Stomp has thrilled audiences with mind-blowing percussive pieces for more than 20 years, touring 350 cities and 36 countries across the globe. Kinetic dance numbers incorporate ubiquitous everyday objects, using brooms, sheets of newspaper, and Zippo lighters to fashion intricate beats and sterling examples of what children should not do. The current tour revamps the classic show, phasing out old numbers and adding in exciting set pieces involving paint cans and tractor tires. The BJCC's capacious concert hall provides plenty of room for airborne harmonies to stretch their wings while orchestra- and tier-level seats provide enviable views of onstage numbers and chimpanzees capering in the catwalk.

  • The NotWedding
    A hush falls over the pews and all heads turn to see the bride step into the light as she glides down the aisle. The groom's face breaks into a huge grin, and guests can't help but smile themselves. For an instant, everyone in the room forgets that this couple is already married and that no one in the room knows who they are. But everyone agrees that the ceremony is beautiful. This is The Big Fake Wedding, a mock wedding in which on-trend wedding vendors display their talents to entice those planning their big day. Brides- and grooms-to-be are treated to an entire faux wedding, complete with ceremony, dinner, and dance reception. They spend dinner jotting down the names of the bakers who created the delectable wedding cake, the chefs who sizzled up the artfully plated meals, and the rental centers that provided the elegant table settings. Guests can also glean ideas for modern and hip decorations and wedding-planning advice, including tactful ways to tell their fianc?e's father to retire his ruffled periwinkle tuxedo.
