Volunteers Needed for Open Streets Emory Village in October

Consider volunteering  for the Fourth Annual Open Streets Emory Village to make it the best yet

Village streets will be closed to vehicular traffic, but open for free fun for the whole family.

The event will kick off this year with a Halloween parade which will assemble on Sunday, October 23, at 3 p.m.,near Panera. It will be  followed by two canine competitions: best costume and best Trick for a Treat.


Make a puppet, climb a wall, get your
face painted, goblin some fare from your favorite Village businesses, haunt the artists market, gasp at the feats of the performers from the Imperial OPA Circus, and more.

This year’s expanded Open Streets Emory Village is seeking volunteers to help staff events. No experience needed, just enthusiasm and some of your time. Interested? Contact Nathan Hartman at nathan@hartmanprivatelaw.com to find out more or volunteer  today at http://www.signupgenius.com/go/30E0B4BA9A82DA20-open
Open Streets Emory Village is a family and pedestrian-friendly event presented in collaboration with DeKalb County by the all-volunteer Emory Village Alliance— a partnership of businesses, neighbors and Emory University, whose mission is to continue to improve the vitality and accessibility of Emory Village as a work, play and dine destination.

The event is made possible by the generosity of more than a dozen sponsors including event sponsors Barnes and Noble, Druid Hills Civic Association, Emory University, Lisa Hill Photography, Natalie Gregory Keller Williams, and The Imperial OPA Circus.  Community sponsorships include  Decatur Screenprints, Glenn Memorial United Methodist Church, John Oxford of State Farm Insurance, Nicole Davis of Coldwell Banker, Nikki Paris, Lucky’s Burgers and Brew, Saba, and the Southfork Conservancy.
