Halloween in Atlanta again and there are things to prepare for concerning the kids. Costumes, candy, location, and some parents have treats to prepare for the children's classmates. Busy. Busy. Busy. No time yourself, right?! Wrong. Atlanta is a major player in the modern tradition of Halloween for adults. It is highly recommended that you get a babysitter confirmed weeks in advance. Even out-of-towners are encouraged to enjoy Halloween in the city because its so close to the weekend.
It doesn't matter if you are trying to go to the haunted house or a costume party for adults with drinks. Whatever you can imagine is possible on Halloween.
My only recommendation is that you be careful, leave all valuables at home (not unattended in your vehicle), and if possible hang in groups. Marta is always a safe means of travel for anyone in and around Atlanta. Tourists are advised to use this means of transportation to get around. for more information on fare/times contact Marta (404) 848-5000 or by email at http://www.itsmarta.com
I have listed a couple events set for the Atlanta area:
Most residents are familiar with the annual Halloween event at Six Flags. This offers tons of family fun. "Fright Fest 2013" presented by Snickers. The festival transitions to "fright by night" after 6 p.m. They have a new terror trail- "Total Darkness" presented by 3 Muskateers. It's actually a blackout maze. The after 6 activities are not recommended for children under 12 or those that scare easy.
