Local Katie Reeder shared some great family activities going on this fall in Alpharetta, GA, an upscale community 22 miles north of Atlanta.

Old Milton Country Fair:   Celebrate the history and heritage of the community at a good old-fashioned country fair. Barbecue and blue grass music, old-time carnival games, heritage and country crafts and demonstrations, pony and train rides, historic exhibits, classic cars, storytelling and more! Named a “Top 20 Event in the Southeast” by the Southeast Tourism Society. Milton Center at Log Cabin. Saturday and Sunday, September 12-13; 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Ironkids Triathlon:   The IronKids National Event Series was started in 1985 and has seen more than 40,000 participants in its history. The series is a swim, bike, run competition for ages 6-15. Distances vary with age. There will also be fun activities for families. Wills Park. Saturday and Sunday, September 12 – 13.

Alpharetta FunFest & Classic Car Show:   Much more than a car show, the FunFest has something for the entire family. The Kids’ Zone includes a petting zoo, arts and crafts area, rides and games. Enjoy entertainment throughout the day and evening. Free admission; located at North Point Mall (home to the Southeast’s only American Girl Boutique and Bistro) and North Point Center East.
