Decatur Wine Festival – Saturday, 11/3, 1 pm to 4 pm

Old Courthouse Square Downtown Decatur

How many different festivals does Decatur host?  This is one of the many great festivals in Decatur.  With over 500 wines at 70 tables it is a good thing there will also be food to sample.  For $35 you can bop around sipping and tasting to the tunes of “7 Day Fool” a 5 piece Atlanta-based blues, rock and soul band.   http://decaturwinefestival.org/

Pancakes & Booze Art Show – Friday 11/2 & Saturday 11/3, 8 pm to 2 am (both nights)

Gallery 1526 in Candler Park

All-U-Can-Eat Pancake Bar for $5 is a real bargain, especially paired with fascinating art from over 75 Atlanta underground and emerging artists with live audio and visual performances.  It is BYOB, but I suppose it keeps the price down.   http://www.gallery1526.com/

Washington Farms Corn Maze – Saturday, 11/3,
10 am to dark and Sunday, 11/4, 1pm to 6 pm, plus “Flashlight Nights” Friday & Saturday, dark until 11 pm
(note: no farm activities at night)

Athens/Watkinsville, GA

Last weekend!  Most corn mazes end this weekend and Washington Farms is the best. Make sure you go to the “Watkinsville” location; they have another location in Loganville that is a different farm.  The corn maze is the main feature but there
is also a long list of other activities; petting zoo, hayride, jumping pillow, pig and duck races, tunnel slides and more, too many to list.  The cost is $12 per person; the price includes unlimited activities except $1 for 3 shots with the Pumpkin sling Shot or Corn Cannon. http://www.washingtonfarms.net/#
