There are lots of fun things to do this weekend, even if you're not into the AthFest scene. If you're not attending the festival, go to the First Annual Sculpture Festival at the Classic Center, venture to the Botanical Gardens for wine, hors d'oeuvres at Twilight Toasts in the Garden, or take the Full Moon Hike.
