One of Atlanta’s greatest rivalries is ITP vs. OTP – neighborhoods and events “Inside the Perimeter” (Interstate 285) compared to those “Outside the Perimeter” in metro Atlanta. It makes for good festival competition, especially when it comes to Fourth of July.

WABE's arts and culture event site, Atlanta PlanIt, is comparing some of the best ITP and OTP July Fourth fireworks displays and celebrations to attend this year.

Compare the events, take your pick and have a great Fourth of July.

It’s time to put the finishing touches on your do-it-yourself Renaissance costume and dust off your Easter basket. Some of the best spring events in Atlanta are happening this weekend, and Atlanta PlanIt is sharing their picks with you.

Saturday is opening day for the Georgia Renaissance Festival, and Cobb County is bringing back its helicopter Easter egg drop. Or if you’re looking for a more traditional night out, there’s a comedy show and a throwback country concert worth checking out.

Looking for some last-minute Atlanta Easter egg hunts for your family to enjoy this week? Atlanta PlanIt is sharing some of Atlanta’s best — and most unique — Easter egg hunts happening this Friday and Saturday.

Traditional egg hunts are still a classic way to celebrate the Easter holiday, but also consider trying something new. There’s a black-light flashlight hunt, a hunt where eggs are dropped from a helicopter, and a hunt that ends with tethered hot air balloon rides.

The Atlanta Dogwood Festival is one of the longest-running spring festivals in Atlanta.
