This festival sounds like a ton of fun. There’s so much to do it’s got me thinking about a weekend get-a-way to Stone Mountain staying at the Evergreen Hotel or camping. There’s a family scavenger hunt that takes guests to multiple Stone Mountain attractions to answer clues. Each weekend one winner receives a four-pack to Snow Mountain, the popular snow tubing attraction that begins in December. You can also decorate your own scarecrow, costume contests, parades, campfires and audience participation shows. That’s all in addition to the everyday fun at Stone Mountain which includes the Sky Hike, Summit Skyride, Antebellum Plantation and Farmyard, Scenic Railroad, 4D Movie, Adventure Golf, The Great Barn and more!
