Feeding Fridays

For a suggested donation of $2, visitors can help the staff feed a whole host of animal pals, including snakes, turtles, chickens, frogs, rabbits and ducks. And while the food’s being dished out, the staff will share a wealth of knowledge about their charges. Make a whole day of it as the site also has trails through a hardwood forest and a village that showcases rural history from the 19th and 20th centuries.

Candlelight Tour of Pickett’s Mill

Seven score and 13 years ago, a Civil War battle raged beneath trees and across a ravine, all under the cover of night. The Friends of Georgia State Parks now invite you to see what it was like for both sides by coming along on one of their five candlelight tours of the battlefield at Pickett’s Mill. Witness cannon blasts and musket firings and experience the unexpected in the dark as you walk the grounds. Plan to leave the pets and strollers at home, and wear your most comfortable walking shoes to traverse the rugged terrain. Advance registration is required at the Friends of Georgia State Parks website.

7:30 and 8:30 p.m. March 3; 6:30, 7:30 and 8:30 p.m. March 4. $10. Pickett’s Mill Battlefield, 4432 Mount Tabor Church Road, Dallas. 770-443-7850,

When it comes time for the film, kids get their own miniature car to hang in while they enjoy the movie. On March 4, the featured film will be “The Peanuts Movie.” PJs and blankets are welcome!

6:30 p.m. March 4. $18-$23. The Little House of Art, 5522 New Peachtree Road, Chamblee. 470-299-8578,
