The third annual Open Streets DeKalb at Emory Village promises to be the best yet when it debuts at 3 p.m. today with circus acts, local musical talent, a bouncy house, Big Kahuna waterslide, face painting, giant chess, cookie decorating, and much more for the whole family. New this year will be a giant climbing wall and a “Best in Show” dog contest. See the schedule.
Neighbors, students and street performers will reclaim the streets between 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. when North Decatur Road will be closed to vehicular traffic from the roundabout at the intersection of North Decatur and Oxford roads to Lullwater roundabout, and on north Oxford Road from the roundabout to Clifton Road. Both roundabouts will remain open.
Open Streets is free and open to the public. The family and pedestrian-friendly event is presented by the Emory Village Alliance and DeKalb County
