6. Atlanta Streets Alive!
(Sunday, May 19 – 2-6pm)
Let me just quote the event here:
“Atlanta Streets Alive will close 2.7 miles of Atlanta's signature street to cars, and open it up to the public — for 4 hours — to create a whole new healthy, sustainable and vibrant city street experience. You, your friends and your family will have the chance to take back 2.7 miles of Peachtree Street - by foot, by bike, by roller skates, by skateboard or by any human-powered means of transportation. Just one thing... no gasoline-engines allowed.”
Hope to see you out there!
