Ever notice how the heat abates the smallest bit and all of a sudden everyone in the county is throwing an event? Because we have.
If you’re like us and have the tiniest bit of trouble keeping up with it, we’re here to help. The features and event staff here at The Times, extra-sharp pencils in hand, are tanned, rested and ready (but mostly just tanned) for another nonstop fall in Hall County and North Georgia.
We’ve got September and October started, but keep an eye on this list because we’ll have updates as we get more information about October and early November.
Dragon boats, barbecues, concerts, festivals, races, hot air balloons — the fall has it all in Hall this year:
