The weekend approaches once more, and here are some tips on how to spend it--Georgia Traveler Style!

The Pink Pig

Lenox Square, Atlanta
All aboard for the Pink Pig! Macy's 56-year-old tradition continues this year at Lenox Square in Atlanta. Kids young and old will thrill to the unforgettable experience of riding in Priscilla.

Georgia Traveler's David Zelski takes a ride on the Pink Pig on an upcoming episode, "The Holiday Tour of Georgia," which is set to premiere Wednesday, December 16 at 7:30 PM on GPB.

Cumming Steam, Antique Tractor, and Gas Engine Exposition

Friday, November 13 - Saturday, November 14, 2009

The Steam, Antique Tractor, and Gas Engine Exposition takes you back in time as you gaze through the various forms of antique farming equipment. There's also a cotton gin, sawmill, and shingle mill! With interactive displays of how all the machines and tractors work, you'll be leaving here with a whole new realm of information! For details, here's the website.

Hunters and fishermen won't want to miss their very own festival.

There will also be a turkey shoot, big buck contest, and gun raffle. There will also be great food, a children's carnival, and Smokey the Bear!
