Marietta Greek Festival

FIT4MOM Atlanta Weekend Roundup May 18-19

Y’all the weather looks GREAT for a Saturday Family Stroller Strides class at the Downtown Alpharetta Farmers Market! Look for us on the small green. If you park in the Library Deck and walk towards the splash fountain, facing the big green look to the right, cross thru the Farmers Market and you will see a recessed small green area. We’ll have a FIT4MOM table set up at the corner. You cant miss us. And we don’t want to miss you! https://www.facebook.com/events/1247873632056645/?event_time_id=1247873642056644
