In a huge English village in Fairburn, roughly 13 miles southwest of the Hartsfield-Jackson Airport, this 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.
Inside Out Center, Inc. provides a safety net for the working poor, the unemployed, the homeless, and other struggling Atlanta citizens—a safety net so comprehensive, it includes a boutique. Dubbed "The Professional Look Boutique," its racks brim with clean, donated job-interview attire, from suits to wingtips. Founders Sharon and Jock Crump, who once unexpectedly spent time on food stamps themselves, have created other resources, too. Their team helps clients out of financial crises with emergency rent and utilities assistance, and runs budgeting and job-training seminars.

a demonstration that marked a turning point for modern gay rights in the US.
Samurai sword fights, flavorful bento boxes, and bone-shaking taiko drumming. Once a year since 1981, JapanFest has brought food, art, culture, and airline peanuts from the Land of the Rising Sun to the American South. Organized by JapanFest, Inc. and supported by the Japanese Chamber of Commerce of Georgia (JCCG) and the Japan-America Society of Georgia (JASG), the celebration features attractions that range from the high-adrenaline—swordplay and archery demos—to the serene, such as workshops on Japanese etiquette and the mystique of sake. Between martial arts and sushi-making lessons, visitors can head to the food court for old-fashioned udon, yakitori, takoyaki, and curry rice.
