Are you guys getting excited about Atlanta Streets Alive?
The event is this very Sunday from 2-6pm on North Highland Avenue. The organizers are working with the city to close the street to motorists. The event is going to transform that usually car-filled street with pedestrians, cyclists, art and food.
It’s going to be big, y’all.
Become a Volunteer
I’m super excited about volunteering at Atlanta Streets Alive this weekend, and if you have a couple of hours to spare on Sunday, they could really use your help! They were about 40 volunteers shy of their goal when I heard from them yesterday, so even if you can only help out for a bit, I bet they would appreciate it!
They need folks to do all sorts of things, from taping off routes to handing out water, so don’t feel like you need any special skill to help out. You can register for one 90 minute to 2 hour shift or more than one.
If you want to become an Atlanta Streets Alive volunteer, you can register here.
Attending Atlanta Streets Alive
If you’d rather attend than volunteer, there’s so much fun stuff in the works! The organizers have awesome activities planned all along North Highland Ave including:
- The Great Atlanta Bicycle Parade
- A walking play produced by Wonderroot
- Laughter yoga
- Double dutch
- Soccer in the Streets
- A bicycle rodeo
Starting at Virginia Ave near Murphy’s restaurant, the route goes through five Atlanta neighborhoods: Virginia Highland, Atkins Park, Poncey-Highland, Inman Park, and the Old Fourth Ward, ending at the Highland Bakery. The route connects to the Freedom Park Trail and the Atlanta BeltLine project.
