BeltLandia Weekender: July 15th – 17th, 2016

Panda-Toddlers-Bamboo-1Just when you thought Atlanta traffic couldn’t get any worse, AmericasMart in downtown hosts a home furnishings event. The work week might be over, but the event is not. It looks like we will suffer through more gridlocked interstates until Tuesday. Hang in there my friends. This might just be the excuse you need to test drive Atlanta’s new bike share program. Grab a Relay ride and take the BeltLine to work!

Enough about traffic… If you’re a concert junkie, this weekend was definitely designed for you. Take your pick of genre – the city will be hosting a handful of artists at various venues throughout the weekend. You might even get married in the process! If loud music isn’t really your idea of a good time, be sure to wish the twin pandas at the zoo a happy birthday.

No matter how you decide to spend your weekend, be safe and have fun!
