Outdoor types won’t want to miss a visit to Stone Mountain Park, followed by the Lasershow Spectacular and a special fireworks display for Labor Day weekend.

 

CORTEO BY CIRQUE DU SOLEIL

Corteo, which means “cortege” in Italian, is a joyous procession, a festive parade imagined by a clown. The show brings together the passion of the actor with the grace and power of the acrobat to plunge the audience into a theatrical world of fun, comedy, and spontaneity situated in a mysterious space between heaven and earth.  Cirque du Soleil’s Corteo will play at the Infinite Energy Arena from August 29 – September 2nd.
