2. Athens Corn Maze
There's no better way to feel fall in the air than a trip to a farm filled with fun harvest activities! At the Athens Corn Maze, guests can take a ride on the Hey Hey Heyride, feed farm animals, and children can take a pony ride! Unique to the Athens Corn Maze is the "Corn Box". It's similar to a sand box, but filled with fresh, clean corn for your children's enjoyment! Don't forget about the Corn Maze, either! The farm is open Thursday- Sunday through November 3rd. Tickets are $10 each.
3. Concerts at the Georgia Theatre
The Georgia Theatre books some of the greatest musical acts in the county and can help catapult up and coming acts into success. It's a special place and luckily, it's in Athens! On Friday, the Dirty Guv'nahs perform at 8 p.m. for a show with a sound described as "rock meets Americana". Tickets are $10. Saturday, Yacht Rock Revue plays a post-game show with their fun and energetic 70s tunes. The group has been featured in publications like the NYT & others, so come see what they're all about!
