The Outlet Shoppes at Atlanta has launched its Fall Festival, with a full lineup of seasonal events until Oct. 31.
The Woodstock outdoor mall is offering crafting stations, free caramel corn and surprise giveaways and selfie stations. Visitors will meet costumed greeters throughout the shopping center.
A large pumpkin is on display at Mountain High Outfitters for a guess-the-weight contest. The person who’s closest to guessing its exact weight wins a $250 gift card. The winner will be revealed on Monday, November 1.
Friday nights, the Outlet Shoppes will show Halloween movies at 8 p.m. at Center Court. The lineup includes “Casper”, “The Addams Family”, “The Nightmare Before Christmas”, “Beetlejuice” and “Hocus Pocus”. Free popcorn will be provided (while supplies last), and everyone should bring a chair or blanket. Guests are encouraged to arrive an hour early – not only to get the best seats, but to take part in games hosted by a live DJ.
Saturday and Sunday afternoons, the center is hosting an Autumn Music Series. The talent lineup includes Kate & Corey, Steve Quiesser Duo, Lorenz und die Katzen (a local, popular Oompah band), Joseph Erwin, the Mariachi Band, Craig Gleason and Michael Magno Duo.
The mall’s Fall Festival Finale is Oct. 30. On this day, kids from 1 to 92 will be invited to dress up in their Halloween costumes and enjoy even more live music, entertainment, a costume parade, family-friendly games, a prize wheel and more.
“The Fall Festival is the first major event since I’ve arrived at The Outlet Shoppes in August, and I must say, I’m really impressed with what the Center is doing for the community of Woodstock,” said Todd Chauvin, general manager of The Outlet Shoppes at Atlanta. “After this event ends, we will roll right into the Holiday season.”
