Weekends are for fun. So in the spirit of kid-friendly (and Easter and Spring Break upon us) - we thought we should give you an update on fun happenings this weekend that kiddies young and old can enjoy. 

  • Stellaluna - Hurry! Last Shows 4/4 - Center For Puppetry Arts - Stellaluna, the enchanting story of a baby fruit bat who falls into a bird’s nest, is adapted from the beloved book by Janell Cannon.  And if you haven't been to a production at the Center For Puppetry Arts, you and your kids are really missing out.


  • Spring FUN Break - Starts 4/4 - Stone Mountain Park -  4-D attractions, rides, magic, and a plethora of events for kids. And, of course, the classic lasershow will be a part of the festivities (Spring FUN Break ends April 11th).


  • Frog Feeding - 4/4 at 11AM - Atlanta Botanical Garden - On Saturday mornings a public frog feeding allows visitors the opportunity to observe one of the most interesting aspects of these amphibians - their feeding behavior. Are we really promoting a frog feeding event? You bet we are (and kids really love it). And there are always the gardens to enjoy afterward.


  • Easter Bunny Pictures - Ends 4/4 - Atlantic Station Dillard's - It's your last chance to get the kids a picture with Easter's most famous bunny. Dress the kids in their Easter best and let them take pics with a holiday icon. Best case scenario - you have lovely pictures to send to the grandparents. Worst case scenario - the kid freaks out and you have blackmail fodder for future love interests.


Now get out there and explore the city! If you have any Spring events you'd love for us to include for next weekend, hit us up on Facebook or send us a shout out on Twitter!
