Join Car-Free, Family Fun on Sunday, October 28, at the Sixth Annual Open Streets Emory Village

It’s time for the whole family to break out your costumes and walk, bike, or roll on down to Open Streets Emory Village on Sunday, October 28, from 2 to 6 p.m.

The Halloween Parade kicks off at 2, so dress accordingly and bring your pups for the Dog Contests starting at 3 (Best Costume and Best-in-Show). Glenn Trunk or Treat will be back for the kiddos, and new activities include a pumpkin-carving contest at 4:30 (bring your own or purchase one from Glenn Memorial), a rubber duckie race at 5 p.m., the Bubble Man (weather permitting), and the Callanwolde Dancers.

All your favorites will be there: live music, food and brews, face painting, the Puppet Factory, circus performers, street games, and more!

Village streets (North Decatur Road from the roundabout to CVS and South Oxford) will be closed to vehicular traffic, but open for free fun for the entire family. If you must drive a car to get there, park for free in Emory’s parking deck at Barnes & Noble.

Open Streets attendees can watch the daring performers of the Imperial OPA Circus, climb the giant rock wall, get their face painted, and sample food from the many Village businesses.

Enjoy non-stop music from a variety of performers, as well as dance demonstrations, a fire truck for children to touch, and games and activities for kids of all ages. Some activities may require a small fee.

Open Streets Emory Village is a 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.
