For over 25 years, the Atlanta Fair has been bringing the thrills, excitement and sounds of the Midway to Georgia residents. What was once only a dream of three carnival-loving brothers from Southeastern Kentucky has blossomed in to one of the largest inner city Fairs that the Southeastern United States has to offer. The fair operates Monday- Thursday from 5-10 p.m., Friday 5-11 p.m., Saturday noon to 11 p.m. and Sunday, 1-11 p.m. Admission for children between the ages of 2-11 is $1 and ages 12 and up are $5 Monday-Sunday and $8 after 6 p.m. on Saturday.
The fair is here until April 2nd and I plan on visiting because my kids are so amused with the rides and the fanfare at the fair. Even I’m like a kid in candy store and hop from ride to ride getting thrills and my share of good eats in along the way.
This fair brings back so many memories from when I was a kid. And it’s an easy way to have some weekend fun without spending too much at an amusement park. There’s also the fact that it’s literally in our own backyard in Atlanta. You only have to tell me once! We’re on our way!
