One signal that our dog days of summer in Midtown Atlanta are numbered, is when you look at the calendar of activities and see all the fesitvals and such there are to go to! And they are not always just in your back yard, but are just a short drive away! I have to admit, I have not been to most of these, but have added a few on my calender for the upcoming visit of my In-laws! Hope you enjoy one or more of them as well!
"Road to Freedom: Photographs of the Civil Rights Movement, 1956-1968"
Stone Mountain is one of those backyard gems you forget you have! Listed in Frommer's 500 Places to Visit with Your Kids Before They Grow Up and cited by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution as one of "35 Natural Wonders in Georgia You Must See Before You Die," Stone Mountain Park is located just 16 miles east of downtown Atlanta. Like I said, backyard we forget about. (In-law activity!)
The show is nightly during the Summer, but for September, you'll have to plan for a Saturday evening only...get there early for choice seating on the Great Lawn and it's FREE. (Well, it costs $8 to get into the park per car.) Be sure to check out the website for other great things to do at the Park!
This event is a first for the University of Georgia. It will celebrate the opening of the new Lamar Dodd School of Art! Enjoy musical and theatrical performances, fine and decorative arts exhibits, the joy of dance, and hands-on activities for children and families.
Best of all...Its FREE! Visit the website to learn more about who, what and when at the home of the Georgia Bulldogs!
This will be Atlanta's largest Hispanic Heritage Month outdoor celebration, with over 15,000 people expected to attend the first of what will become Atlanta's annual Hispanic Heritage Month celebration. Fiesta Georgia will be a day long celebration of Latino culture, music, and food. The event features continuous live performances by national and local artists, vendor booths offering free product samples, arts and crafts, and authentic Latino foods.
Go Figure! An Arts Festival IN Piedmont Park! The City of Atlanta banned all Class A sized Festivals (attendance of 50,000 or more) from the Park due to the drought conditions. This festival has managed to escape the "axe" since it is not nearly as large as its competitor, The Dogwood Festival. So if you are missing your day in the park, lounging, people watching and all, this is the only chance you get this year. But don't plan on a game of touch football or such...."organized sports play" is still banned in the park because of the drought conditions.
I've never attended this one, it's new (I think this is the 2nd or 3rd year) so can't say anything about the artists as compared to The Dogwood. You'll have to check it out on your own. But, if you don't bring a picnic, wonder on over to Marlow's Tavern at Plaza Midtown for some great food, beverages and all kinds of tv's to watch!
See....if by now you have not found the perfect art piece for that open space on your wall....we've got you covered with yet another festival with an artist's market, crafters, pet parade, entertainment..and even a 5K and 10K run! Then there's a Food Court to keep you going!
One thing that the web site lists that sounds pretty "green" is the Drive Green exhibit. Learn more about planet-friendly vehicles by visiting this collection of fuel-efficient cars from area dealers. Will driving a hybrid really pay off? Can I drive green with style?
Check out the cars and talk with dealer reps about the impact of greener cars on the environment and finding one that works for you. Drive Green participants include Sandy Springs Toyota, Global Imports BMW and MINI and Curry Honda.
Top off the month of September, if you have the energy left (and any money after all those art purchases and beers) at the ever popular....
25th Annual Atlanta Home Show Fall Edition
Cobb Galleria Center - Atlanta (Or Marietta)
You never know who will be there, revealing their tips and secrets! Plus, you always get to check out some great products, get new ideas for your next remodeling project, and come home with a bag full of literature that will take you a week to sift through!
From Kitchens to landscaping, and everything inbetween, you are sure to find information you can use!
I have not attended this show for a couple years. (I'm still sifting through my last bag of stuff....just kidding) but it really does give you exposure to lots of cool products for your home and garden.
When you finish here...head back to Midtown Atlanta...you'll be worn out, and ready for some refreshments at any of our fine watering holes, including Taco Mac, Zocalo and The Vortex!
Hope to see you out and about enjoying all there is to do this month while you are looking for your Atlanta Real Estate
Anything about Intown Atlanta Real Estate you wanted to know but were afraid to ask, or didn't know WHO to ask....you have come to the right place. And if we don't know we WILL get the answer! So WHAT IS Intown Atlanta?
There are many definitions, but let's just say anything inside I-285, or "Inside the Perimeter - ITP" is Intown Atlanta! There are many neighborhoods, from Buckhead, to Brookhaven, Morningside, Midtown, and Midtown West, to actual cities like Decatur, Chamblee, and Doraville.
I work with BOTH Buyers and Sellers. If you are looking for the best Internet Marketing, or a broker that knows the Intown Atlanta area, then you HAVE come to the right place!
