From Staff Reports

It’s still the slow season as the 2019 weekend things-to-do calendar rolls into the third weekend of January.

Plenty of children’s activities are scheduled Saturday at either the Powell Library in Newnan, Peachtree City Library or the Newnan Children’s Museum.

And check out the live music events, plus Customer Appreciation Day at Smallcakes Cupcakery of Newnan and the January Market Days for Cotton & Clover Marketplace, also in Newnan.

The weather will likely get in the way again with rain showers Friday evening, most of the day Saturday and then much colder temperatures barge in on Sunday.

Below is the day-to-day listing of events in the area. To have your event published, please email [email protected].
