Weekend Things To Do


There’s a little bit of everything this weekend and you can even help the less fortunate. Wheat Family Dental is offering “Pay it Forward Dental Day” with $10 donations for teeth cleaning. Donations go toward dental supplies for Hope for Haiti. There’s also a volunteer trail work day set for Chattahoochee State Bend Park.

And for more traditional entertainment, The True Story of Pocahontas continues at Serenbe Playhouse, the first Main Street Music Festival is going on in Senoia and Strange LaGrange, a walking tour involving some ghosts and other spooky legents.
