Residents in Alpharetta and Milton won't have to work too hard to find something to do with family and friends this weekend.
Both cities are set to host annual events that will no doubt draw thousands of people from their homes.
Crabapple Fest kicks off at 10 a.m. Saturday in downtown Crabapple while Scarecrow Harvest and Brew Moon Fest will take shape in Alpharetta. The harvest will be held at 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and will feature over 100 scarecrows on the streets of downtown Alpharetta.
Brew Moon Fest, presented by the Alpharetta Business Association, will be held from 6:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 each and can be purchased in advance online on the Alpharetta Business Association's website or at the gate the night of the event.
Residents will be able to groove to the tunes of Old School Band and A1A, the official and original Jimmy Buffet Tribute band, while beer, wine and delicious food from some of Alpharetta’s best restaurants will be on sale to purchase.
If you prefer a more laid back event, the Alpharetta Farmers Market will return to downtown Alpharetta. The market will be open from 8 a.m. to noon along Milton Avenue and Canton Street.
Those planning to attend Crabapple Fest won't have to worry about parking as the city plans to offer free parking and shuttle services. A wide variety of food, beverages and entertainment will also be on hand for the event, which will be held along Crabapple and Broadwell Roads.
At the Scarecrow Harvest, which is free to attend, residents will also be able to enjoy music, games of cornhole, face painting, arts and crafts, story telling, inflatable and free hay rides to the Future Farmers of America Log Cabin. At the cabin, residents and children will be able to "plant-a-posy" and experience demonstrations.
