By Jennifer Sheran, publisher Macaroni Kid McDonough, Stockbridge, Hampton, Locust Grove September 15, 2021

It's officially Fall!!! I've been busy searching for all the local events to bring you a full fall calendar of events and fun activities! I have compiled all things fall into the 2021 Fall Fun Guide. If you are looking for corn mazes, pumpkin patches, trunk or treat locations, haunted attractions, and fall festivals, you will find all of it and more in this comprehensive guide of local events.

GIVEAWAY WINNER! Last week, we announced a giveaway of four tickets to see the Gold Over America Tour to see the US Olympic Gymnasts at Gas South Arena in Duluth on October 26. The winner is Andrea Meggie from McDonough!

This week's Top Five Picks

Every week I choose five events or activities to highlight things to do in and around McDonough, Stockbridge, Hampton, Locust Grove, Griffin, Jackson, and surrounding areas.

If you go to one of the activities on the list, please share with us on Instagram @mackidmcdonough #findyourfamilyfun.
