The holiday season is in full swing. Here are our (mostly festive) picks for things to do in Atlanta this weekend:

Carol’s Picks
Carol is the ATL Insider’s culture vulture. If there is a new exhibit in town or a new show on the stage, Carol is the first to know about it.

  • Candlelight NightsFriday
    If you've ever been to Atlanta History Center, then you know how beautiful the grounds are, and, of course, the historic homes are wonderful, too. During Candlelight Nights, tour the grounds and homes amid the twinkling of lights and glimpse the way Southerners celebrated Christmas during pioneer days, the Civil War and the 1930s. You can even shop at the Christmas Market. History rocks at Atlanta History Center.

  • Atlanta Christkindl Market at Atlantic Station, through Dec. 24
    It's an outdoor festival and market. You can shop, eat German food, sip a beverage and otherwise enjoy the city sidewalks dressed in holiday style. Sounds like fun. 

Joleen's Picks
Joleen is a work-at-home mom to a 3- year-old son. She and her family live in the 'burbs but enjoy regularly traveling into the city for family-friendly fun and adventure.

Tommy's Picks
Tommy is a young professional keeping an eye out for the city's liveliest happenings.

  • Jingle Ball 2016Friday
    Celebrate the festive season with a pop music blowout at Philips Arena featuring Fifth Harmony, Meghan Trainor, Ariana Grande and more.

  • Air Force Reserve Celebration BowlSaturday
    Experience the heritage, legacy, pageantry and tradition of Historically Black Colleges and Universities as the MEAC and SWAC champs clash at the Georgia Dome this weekend.
