Rainy weekend: Atlanta area cancellations, continuations

Rain or shine, the Seed and Feed Marching Abominable is in for a parade. This time, it was the (very damp) East Atlanta Strut on Saturday. AJC/Jamie Gumbrecht

UGH. I love rain like I love my alarm clock. It’s needed, it serves an important purpose, but does it have to do its thing right now?!

Indeed, our forecast for this weekend, and the next several days, is no fun at all. If you hear of an outdoor event delayed, canceled or postponed, or one that is still going on through the rain, let me know in the comments, on Twitter @insideaccess or via e-mail, jgumbrecht@ajc.com.

And remember, there are plenty of good indoor events this weekend, too, from museums and libraries to For Sisters Only to a lot of events and shows on the Weekend To-Do List.

CHANGED, CANCELED OR POSTPONED

  • March of Dimes Bikers for Babies ride from Turner Field to Helen, Ga. is postponed till Nov. 8 because of weather.
  • Splish Splash Doggie Bath at Piedmont Park is postponed still Sept. 26.
  • Pints for Pets at SweetWater Brewery will continue 6-9 p.m. but leave pets at home if it’s still raining — they’re not allowed in the brewery. (Still, the $25 beer tasting event will benefit Atlanta Pet Rescue.)
  • The Concert on the Square in Decatur was canceled because of weather; Soulhound will play for the concert series in May. (Spotted on Decatur Metro.)

STILL GOING STRONG (AND WET) ON SEPTEMBER 19

Lisa, the AJC just reported about 10 minutes ago that Georgia State canceled classes for tonight! Stay home and be safe!

Why is Georgia State not cancelling classes- endangering students- They don’t know where these kids have to travel to get back home all times a night.

Hi Gregory! At this point, the Braves game is still on, with no delays. They suggest that folks keep an eye on Braves.com for cancellations due to weather, but it seems the bad weather would have to be much more serious than the steady rain we’ve had lately. There’s always a chance the game could be delayed by rain at the start, or after it has started, but that’s the chance we take, I suppose.
