Old Fourth Ward Fall Fest
Historic Fourth Ward Skatepark, 830 Willoughby Way
This weekend is the Beltline Lantern Parade, and what better way to watch it than at a festival? We’re heading to the skate park for a food truck rally and beltline lantern parade party with live music, a full bar, yoga with KOP and of course, watching the parade from the Beltline. This weekend is going to be pretty magical, if you ask us.

Don’t You Forget About the Breakfast Club
Highwire Comedy Co., Decatur, 3041 N Decatur Rd.
There’s nothing like an ‘80s teen movie. The sportos, motorheads, geeks, bloods, wasteoids, dweebies, we love ‘em all. And you know what else we love? Making up as we go, so we’re pretty fired up to see this improvised ‘80s teen movie. The chuckleheads at Highwire will take audience suggestions to make up a story full of nostalgia and hilarity.
