Grrrrrrrrowl — watch out for bears in Atlanta this weekend

If you see some hulking, furry creatures prowling around Atlanta and swimming in pools, have no fear — these bears are friendly, and quite sexy, and are in the city to celebrate the annual Atlanta Bear Fest.

The party gets started today at the host hotel, Courtyard Northlake Marriott, 4083 LaVista Road, Tucker, GA 30083.

And what’s on tap for the weekend? Click here for the full list that includes a Jail House concert with Rock Cub, a “prisoner transfer” to the Atlanta Eagle, pool parties, as well as plenty of vendors to purchase some fun garb and bear wear.

As part of the tradition of Atlanta Bear Fest, there will be guards and wardens to keep the “inmates” in line. Check out what the ABF Prison Memo here.
