Tomorrow is Marietta’s Harvest Square Arts & Crafts Festival, which will feature an artists’ market, games, activities, costume contests, and much more. There’s even a pet costume contest for your furry friends!

Of course, no discussion of Atlanta Halloween events would be complete without some zombies! As the home of The Walking Dead, we take our zombies seriously, so you will not want to miss the Marietta Zombie Walk tomorrow. Bring canned goods to benefit local families in need, and stay for a good, old-fashioned monster movie “drive-in” double feature in Glover Park!
