Atlanta weekend | 55K expected at same venue for Trump, Bronner Bros.

Do yourself a favor, metro Atlanta.

Avoid downtown on Sunday and just stay home.

About 55,000 visitors are expected to flood the Georgia World Congress Center for the Bronner Bros. International Beauty Show, the American Rental Association’s annual trade show and conference and Republican frontrunner Donald Trump’s Atlanta campaign stop.

For those who won’t be swayed, check for traffic delays before venturing from home.

Keep in mind traffic paces require motorists to drive 5 mph to 10 mph to allow contractors to work across interstate lanes.

Weekend to see spring-like weather

With mostly cloudy skies and temperature spikes, also expect some variation in the weather as part of the normal transition to spring, Channel 2 meteorologists said.

“Checking out your five-day forecasts, we’re going to see warmer weather over the weekend,” meteorologist Karen Minton said.

Highs will reach 66 degrees Saturday and Sunday in metro Atlanta, and the lows will be 48 degrees Saturday and 52 degrees Sunday.

Also, expect a 40 percent chance for showers Sunday night and even more rain Monday, when there’s a 70 percent chance of precipitation.

Trump, Bronner Bros., Rental Show on the weekend agenda

An estimated 16,000 attendees are expected to watch the Atlanta Hawks take on the Miami Heat at 8 p.m. Friday in the Philips Arena. The Heat will take on the Milwaukee Bucks at 7:30 p.m. Saturday in the Arena.

The Bronner Bros. show should attract slightly more attendees, 20,000 a day, at the event held from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday at the Georgia World Congress Center.

Trump will be at the Georgia World Congress Center on Sunday, too. In what is likely his first campaign stop after the South Carolina GOP primary, he will speak at 4 p.m.

The Rental Show, an annual trade show and conference from the American Rental Association, is expected to have 11,000 attendees at the event from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday — also at the Georgia World Congress Center.
