Looking for the best things to do in Atlanta this weekend? Here are some family-friendly events and activities to add to your weekend list! 

The warm spring weather in Atlanta means free outdoor concert season—perfect family-friendly, evening events. Just bring a blanket and chairs and enjoy free live music while the kids run around. Check out Live at the DTL (Downtown Lawrenceville) series, which kicks off Friday with a Guns N' Roses tribute band and food vendors. Also on Friday night, families can head to downtown Alpharetta for the City Center Concert Series, featuring the band, Stranger Company. Over in downtown Duluth, folks hit Fridays-N-Duluth, a popular weekly festival that boasts food trucks and live entertainment. And just in case you missed it, these events are all FREE!
