3 fun things: Feb. 3-5


ROSWELL

A Temptations Revue

“Get Ready” to soothe your soul with the unforgettable hits of the Temptations when the Live in Roswell Series Temptations Revue rolls into town. The act features Barrington “Bo” Henderson, who took over as the lead singer of the famed group from 1997 through 2003. For this performance, he’ll take fans even further back, through all the unforgettable classics such as “My Girl” to “Ain’t Too Proud to Beg,” while also showcasing the group’s signature dance steps. Doors open 30 minutes before the show, and tickets can be purchased at the door or in advance online. And it’s not just your imagination: This is one night that will be fun for all ages.

8 p.m. Feb. 4. $30. Roswell Cultural Arts Center, 950 Forrest St., Roswell. 770-594-6232, roswellgov.com.

NEWNAN

Run for Angels and Chicken Q

Strap on those running shoes and join the race for a good cause. Angel’s House, an organization in Newnan that provides safe housing for teen girls in crisis, hosts its 15th annual Run for Angels race. All ages and abilities are welcome to join the 1-mile fun run, 5K or 10K races (and perhaps qualify for a spot in the Peachtree Road Race, too). After the race, recharge and relax with a plate of chicken — or just go for the chicken to support the runners.

7 a.m.-1:30 p.m. Feb. 4. $20-$40 for the run; $10 for a chicken plate. The starting line is at the First United Methodist, 33 Greenville St., Newnan. 770-251-7050, theangelshouse.org.

CHAMBLEE

Black History Month Quiz

February offers the chance to learn more about the impact African-Americans have had on our nation. From America’s first protest to the invention of the Super Soaker, the minds, actions and words of African Americans have shaped our lives in countless ways. The Chamblee Library invites children ages 5-12 to discover this rich history with the Black History Month Quiz. Using charts and posters throughout the building, the quiz encourages kids to seek out the answers and win a prize once they’ve finished. Can’t make it this Saturday? They’ll still have time to test their knowledge, since the quiz will continue throughout the month.

10 a.m.-5 p.m. Feb. 4. Free. Chamblee Library, 4115 Clairmont Road, Chamblee. 770-936-1380, dekalblibrary.org.
