Fall means Festivals and falling leaves… and maybe some falling rain

You cannot go very far from your home and miss an Atlanta Festival happening somewhere! From the tour of homes, and get this –treehouses!, at the 15th annual Candler Park Fall Fest all weekend, to strolling through Oakland Cemetery for Sunday in the Park; haunted houses and state fairs to apple and pumpkin picking.

If you’re out and about, don’t miss these great activities:

cpCandler Park Fall Fest celebrates 15 years of providing family fun, food and festivities all weekend. Don’t miss the incredible tour of homes featuring the neighborhood’s rich architectural history and some very unique treehouses and garden delights. The little ones will flip for Kidlandia! An abundance of local food venues and trucks, and well over 100 artists round out the festival. Check it out at http://fallfest.candlerpark.org/ .

Saturday night, The Old Fourth Ward will host Atlanta’s largest public outdoor art gallery on the grounds of the Martin Luther King Jr National Historic Site Visitor’s Center. Flux Night 2015: Dream is a one-night, free event celebrating local and international artists in the visual and performing arts. Bring an umbrella just in case, but this is not to be missed!

The Victorian-inspired Sunday in the Park in Historic Oakland Cemetery celebrates 35 years of community involvement with tours of the park, cemetery and some of those private mausoleums, live (no pun intended) music and dance entertainment, living history demonstrations, and antique autos. There is a small fee, but it supports the Historic Oakland Foundation’s restoration and preservation efforts throughout the park.

If that weren’t enough, travel a few short miles to our surrounding communities to enjoy some of these offerings!

The North Georgia State Fair begins to wind down in Marietta, but not before you get to enjoy the animals, rides and carnival food.

Haunted Houses are starting to creep up all over! Check out the Atlanta Events Calendar for one that tingles your spinal cord, http://www.events12.com/atlanta/october/ !

For those pessimistic about the rain predictions, you’ll be dry at the Atlanta Game Fest celebrating the all-American board gaming past-time! Or the Out On Film film festival at the Landmark Midtown Art Cinema will be showing (indoor!) films and videos all week!

Enjoy yourself throughout our neighborhoods!

When Melissa Wakamo began her real estate career in 2004, her goal was to focus on her immediate area and get to know her neighbors. "I've had a lot of fun over the years helping my neighbors sell their homes and helping newcomers become a part of our community."

Melissa quickly became one of metro Atlanta's top producing agents and consistently performed in the top 1% of all Atlanta agents. By 2009, Melissa's real estate team had grown to include several agents and support staff, dedicated to providing exceptional service to buyers and sellers in Atlanta's intown neighborhoods.

In 2010, Melissa transitioned Red Robin REALTORS® into an independently owned boutique brokerage. Even in the tough real estate market during that time, Red Robin REALTORS® continued to outperform other small brokerages and was able to help buyers and sellers adapt to the rapid changes in the market.

In 2017, Melissa had the opportunity to merge the Red Robin REALTORS team with another like-minded boutique brokerage, Keller Knapp Realty. The two community-focused organizations bring together more than 100 agents, including 3 of the top 10 agents in metro Atlanta. With offices in Oakhurst, Ormewood Park and Midtown, Keller Knapp Realty and Red Robin REALTORS team are the top boutique real estate firm in Atlanta.

In her role as Managing Broker, Melissa provides agent training, marketing and strategic oversight for the Brokerage, ensuring that the brokerage maintains its focus and commitment to the intown market.

Melissa's active participation in various neighborhood organizations and charitable efforts, as well as her passion for antiques, cooking, and gardening, keep her busy and in touch with the community.
