Walker Stalker Con
When: October 26-28
Where: Georgia World Congress Center
Cost: $30-$105
Details: The Walking Dead is going through some major changes this year, with only two more episodes left for its main protagonist Rick Grimes before actor Andrew Lincoln exits the show. But this annual convention for all things Dead carries on as usual with plenty of celebrities (most of the current cast will be in attendance, along with a huge list of former cast members), vendors, trick-or-treating for kids, and more.

Atlanta World Kite Festival
When: October 27, 1-6 p.m.
Where: Piedmont Park
Cost: Free
Details: With this weather, it’s a perfect time for a walk in the park—while watching dozens of creative kites fill up the sky. With kite-making contests, live music, food trucks, face painting, and photo booths, this one’s perfect for the family.

Race for Rest 5K
When: October 27, 9 a.m.
Where: Monday Night Brewing Garage
Cost: $35
Details: Starting and ending at Monday Night Brewing’s Garage, this Peachtree Road Race qualifier benefits Furniture Bank of Metro Atlanta, which gives free furniture to people coming out of homelessness, domestic violence, or who have HIV/AIDS. After the 5K, there will be food, live music from Sweet Auburn String Band, and a “bed race” where teams dressed in costumes will push beds on wheels through a parking lot. If you’re 21 or older, you’ll get a free beer and a bloody Mary shooter from ASW Distillery, in case you needed another reason to attend.

Fox Theatre Ghost Tours
When: October 25-31
Where: Fox Theatre
Cost: $35
Details: Take a tour through the Fox Theatre while learning about the theater’s 89 years of ghost sightings, unexplainable events, and haunted history. This year focuses on stories from Mr. and Mrs. William Fox, who the theater is named after, while characters from their past join the tour.
