This week will likely be another hot one in Middle Georgia so thankfully there are many events taking place inside or during the cooler hours in the evening. There will be a fun storytelling event from Storyteller's Macon on Tuesday, a "french fry fight" between 20 restaurants in Downtown Macon on Thursday, and a lot of other unique happenings as well.
