Decatur, GA The Decatur Art Festival took place over the weekend on Mother’s Day, with a popular artist’s market, performances, food and drink. This year’s festival was moved from the weekend to Remembrance Day to beat the late May heat, and the colder weather didn’t disappoint.

In addition to the art festival on Saturday, May 7, the Decatur PTA City School’s Diversity, Equality and Inclusion Committees held a spring festival in the Middle East and South Asia at the Ebster Recreation Center that included educational stands and artists, family activities, performances and food vendors.
