Despite the temperamental weather forecast, people from all over the Atlanta area traveled into the city to enjoy the festivities of Atlanta's Dogwood Festival on April 18. Perhaps due to its return to a home on the green of Piedmont Park, it drew crazy amount of people who clogged the streets and sidewalks of Midtown. Food, music, and various forms of artwork from dozens of exhibiting artists contributed to the agenda of the weekend event.

A surprising number of people came out to fight each other April 4…using pillows. That’s correct, the International Pillow Fight Day does exist and the celebration was held at Freedom Park. It's all fun and games so don't get your feathers ruffled...
Grab your umbrella and a BLT because when it rains, it pours... The weather didn't scare away devoted bacon lovers from attending the annual Bacon Fest, which took place March 28 at Dad's Garage Theatre. People of all ages came out to enjoy the event's festivities, which included games, live music, beer, and plenty of bacon.
Ladies, gentlemen and children of all ages attended Cartoon Madness IV: Circus at Alcove Gallery March 6. The show opened with flamethrowers and steadily wowed audiences throughout the night with artwork and performances from jugglers, clowns, and local band Greasepaint. Grab some popcorn and cotton candy, and enjoy the pictures from the show.
