ATLANTA -- You have no excuse if you can't find something fun to do in Atlanta this weekend.
But even if you don't, you need to be aware of a lot of fun things going on that will make getting around even tougher than usual, especially downtown.
Right now we have not one, not two, but THREE circuses in town.
Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus has taken over the Philips Arena.
The Big Apple Circus is at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre in Alpharetta.
And the locally based Universoul Circus is at the Green Lot at Turner Field through March 3rd.
Add to that more than 900 cheer and dance teams from all over the country at the World Congress Center through Sunday for the Cheerfest Cheerleading and Dance national competition.
Also at the World Congress Center from February 16th -19th is the Bronner Brothers International Hair Show.
Postponed in January thanks to a Falcons playoff game, the Monster Jam huge truck show should also draw a big crowd at the Georgia Dome.

And then there are scores of plays and concerts all over the metro area, not to mention highway construction on I-285 on the north side and near Glenwood Road, as well as on I-20 eastbound between Columbia Drive and Wesley Chapel Road.
Police and MARTA are urging people to plan ahead and to take public transit whenever possible.
