Open Streets 2018: A Splendid Time for All

What a difference a year makes! With Mother Nature’s help and lots of preHalloween fun things to do, this year’s Open Streets Emory Village on October 28 was a rousing success. Blue skies and plenty of sunshine attracted crowds of princesses, soldiers, ghosts and ghouls; one estimate put the crowd at more than 2,000.

Several new events made a big impression on Open Streets fans, so expect to see them again next year. Crowds of all ages watched the multiple tracks set up by the Piedmont Division of the National Model Railroad Association. Everybody had an opportunity to drive a train or grab a lollipop from a box car.

Thanks to the environmentalists from the South Fork Conservancy, many more people now realize there is a creek beside the parking lot at Panera Bread Company. Children (and adults) cheered as bright yellow rubber ducks raced down the creek toward the North Decatur Road finish line manned by Georgia Representative-Elect Becky Evans. The first three finishers, marked with numbers tying them to sponsors, received prizes.


The Georgia Bubble Man delighted children of all ages as he released his multiple-sized bubbles into the streets, creating a festive atmosphere enjoyed by all. Some drifted high into the sky before disappearing with a pop, while others encountered more immediate threats, like children’s fingers or signposts.

Several restaurants brought their food outside to the streets so neighbors could taste their wares. The climbing wall, always a huge hit, had a run on young women climbing the hard way – in skirts.

As usual, Glenn United Memorial Methodist Church’s Trunk or Treat was a huge hit. Trunks included the Eyrich family farm, a pirate ship (requiring treat seekers to walk the plank), and an authentic German Root Bier Garten serving root beer and pretzels.

Volunteers from Druid Hills High School spread through the streets, painting children’s faces, helping carve pumpkins, and generally making everyone happy. One of the more creative carved pumpkins featured the spire of Glenn Memorial Church.

Always popular, neighborhood dogs competed for several prizes, including best costume and best-in-show. Celebrity judges—DeKalb Commissioner Jeff Rader, State Representative Mary Margaret Oliver and State Senator Elena Parent — doggedly assessed the fierce competition. There was Darth Vader, a chicken, ghosts, skeletons, a hot dog, a firedog, a pirate, and many others. Penelope, the pearl-adorned pig, watched events from her pen as her mom, Sarah-Reilly Murphy, hawked her homemade animal toys, which also served as prizes for the contests. 

And what’s an event without music, celebrating neighborhood and intown talent, and the daring, flexible performers of the OPA Imperial Circus? The Center for Puppetry Arts Puppet Factory, a crowd favorite, again mesmerized the little ones.

Once again, Emory Village Alliance thanks its sponsors, especially DeKalb County and the Druid Hills Civic Association. Come visit the shops and restaurants of the village soon!

  1. Attractive element of content. I simply stumbled upon your site

  2. Pao was first brought onto Kleiner Perkins to be the chief of staff for one of the firm’s senior partners John Doerr.
    Hermle said Pao was supported throughout the years she worked at Kleiner Perkins and was treated “like a surrogate daughter” by Doerr.
    But they sounded less like a punk band than a band that predated punk, that sprang out of that weird,
    liminal period immediately prior to 1976, where the bleakness
    of mid-70s Britain had seeped into rock’s fringes
    – the tougher end of the pub-rock scene, the more thuggish bits of late-period glam – but not yet become codified into series of
    musical diktats. He played keyboards, sometimes several at once:
    nothing compared to the banks of equipment behind which Rick Wakeman plied his trade,
    but far more than most punk bands would countenance.

    Mysterians or the Standells, which was just about acceptable under punk rules.
    Not only did Pao willingly leave Kleiner Perkins, Hermle
    said, it was also apparent that her departure was due to alleged performance issues
    rather than gender discrimination. Pao attorney Alan Exelrod
    told the jury during his opening statement. But in the end, it’s the best research you’ll ever conduct.

  4. Hello my family member! I want to say that this
    post is amazing, great written and come with almost all
    significaant infos. I’d like to look extra posts like this .

    Also visit my website – binary trading signals app (Susanna)

  5. Its like you read my mind! You appear to know so much about this,
    like you wrote the book in it or something.
    I think that you could do with some pics to drive the message home a little bit, but other than that, this is great blog.

    An excellent read. I will definitely be back.

  6. It supports videos in 720p with 30 fps and has a 3D noise reduction feature,
    as well as low-latency video processing and automatic
    white balance and color correction. Moreover, Razer Kiyo has a reduced
    graininess and enhances details on videos in darker environments.
    Note: Some of our readers report that the Razer Kiyo image is quite grainy for
    a medium-priced camera. The camera and the microphone work together; There are 8 smart microphones that equalize the
    volume and can detect anyone speaking in the 18-foot radius.

    It is not easy work entirely. It can stream to Vimeo, Twitter, Livestream, Facebook, Periscope, and YouTube in an HD resolution of 1080p, which is perfect
    for all your conferences. With 90 degrees radius of viewing, the C930e can even be
    used for multi-person video conferences. This means
    that we can connect with others virtually – either through video calls, voice calls or chats.

  7. Or maybe you want her to lick her feet in a way that would make you hornier than how you are right now?
    The thing with webcam girls today is that you can spend as much or as
    little as you want if you prefer seeing them live.
    One simple thing you can do to stand out from the boring men who
    attend church – this drives women crazy and lets them know youre available, but you wont have to say a word… Why being
    a missionary may lead you to have more girls than you ever thought possible – but you have to go
    to the right places! Following Wilson’s trip, Khadafi issued
    a press release stating that “an American diplomat had been sent to reduce tensions with Libya.” The State
    Department denied that any such thing had taken place. However, the live sex
    cam model have the right to reject any request if
    they find it unacceptable.

  8. As aforementioned they don’t seem to be on anyone’s’ top five list, but in light of what we now
    know, the navigation, the quality of models and high def feeds.

    If users are anonymous and don’t use any type of
    login, what’s to stop you from simply logging back on if you’ve been banned?
    The shows in free webcam rooms are great for a warmup, selecting your preferred cam girl, and talking out
    the type of fetishes you want her to explore with you in private or exclusive.
    They are one of the oldest and most visited webcam chat
    sites out there. Of course there are places to find hot guys doing video sex
    chat, and there are plenty of girls and guys enjoying text sex chat
    too! Of course if you get a guy who’s into small cock humiliation, you don’t want to tell
    him his dick is big.

  9. Yes I eat vagina…

    I’m into women as long as a guy is involved or have cam guys to watch

    One on one alone I feel awkward lol

    I think ORAL sex should be reciprocal regardless of the private part


  10. Last night was my final book event of 2019 and probably
    the most fun – talking about sex for an hour or so with these four amazing women. Thanks to the @feministbooksoc @Rosie_B_T for asking
    me and everyone who came along …

  11. This is why the sex stores did such good business. Before its
    introduction, men (and perhaps some women)
    visited the Red Light District – an area focused on erotic entertainment
    – and went to sex stores to buy porn magazines.
    This Amsterdam Peep Show is located in the heart of the Red Light District.
    The new night club in the Red Light District will be named “Muze”, according to van Otten. In April 2014, the Amsterdam Peep Show announced that
    it will close its doors. According to the Dutch newspaper
    “Het Parool” this is last peep show of Amsterdam, according to “De Telegraaf” and Vice
    the Amsterdam Peep Show is even the last one of its kind
    in the Netherlands! A look inside one of the 12 peep show booths.
    “Mr. Red Light District”, Jan van Otten in his Peep
    Show. Therefor they come here – literally Next to
    that, it’s a lot of fun to see this place in Amsterdam’s Red Light District!
    Guys went to a bar, then to this erotic show for a warming-up and afterwards they’d perhaps visit a prostitute in the Red
    Light District. Unfortunately, Amsterdam Peep Show is the last one
    of its kind and it’s located on the Oudezijds Achterburgwal
    in the Red Light District.

  12. Do guys put this much effort into DAs as girls do? Girls put on makeup, shave/wax EVERYTHING, exfoliate, etc.
    Just to have sex with a guy who gon swipe their boonkey wit a
    damp rag and spray cologne (sike—i hope not)I keep watching those
    grwm vidsthey’re so interesting

  13. Heya i am for the first time here. I found this board and I find It truly useful & it
    helped me out a lot. I hope to give something back and help others like you aided me.

  14. Whenever you are in charge of taking photos for an event or celebration,
    draft a list of shots that you or the attendees would like to capture ahead
    of time. This is a great way to keep the event flowing smoothly.
    Traffic plays the big role in choosing the best sites to watch cam girls on, because with the traffic comes a great variety
    of online models and fetishes you can choose.
    Here are just five things you can expect from the
    City. The Australasian New Car Assessment Program or
    ANCAP is our industry safety standard, so this is great news for Mazda,
    who also snagged a five star award for the new Mazda2.
    All of these features contributed to the 5 star ANCAP safety rating and allow you to have total confidence.
    While not all cases require implants, people looking for a
    permanent solution have to undergo this complex procedure!

  15. A gang of paedophiles raped and abused a baby and a pre-school child in attacks that were live streamed over the internet, a court heard today.
    ‘The evidence exposes the shocking interest a group of men had in sexually abusing children and babies, particularly
    pre-school children and babies. “It’s highly successful because both men and women are on the same page and one of its biggest selling points is the ready availability of no-strings sex,”
    says Jessica. Also a boy aged four or five was brought into a room while a man engaged in sexual activity for his
    own enjoyment as men watched live on the internet.

    Whether it’s sex chat, video chat, or something
    a bit more in depth, there is always activity and fun, exciting
    people to talk to in our busy server chat rooms. We know there are many other live sex sites available online, however, we promise you have never experienced anything like the sex
    video chat features we offer on Pornoroulette.
    However, if you still miss ads, Pure will be an amazing choice.

  16. Pero de qué hablas? Ni que para ser web cam tuvieses que salir jajajajja
    amigo deja el show la gente si está trabajando, no tenemos
    la culpa de que tú estés ponchao

  17. Hi would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m having a hard time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different
    then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

  18. Top quality great selection and expert advice you can trust.
    Some of his renowned dating advice for men products are the Attraction Code and
    the Dominant Sexual Power. Fabletics offers affordable high quality
    and stylish workout clothes for women men. Despite what most people may think,
    men are sometimes judged based on how well they perform in bed or around women. For me, alcohol took one of
    the most beautiful people on earth and turned
    them into an addicted mountain of rage and depression. ’s some stuff about gender identity, orientation, how to build a support group, how
    people use virginity constructs to make other people feel
    bad… Place your foot so as to support the spine and on exhalation, continue rotation as far as comfortable.
    At this point you will find that your city is too far away from
    her city. You will find a first page of our member zone.

  19. Back in N18 after a lovely break as predicted nothing changed, apart from Christmas
    lights on Fore Street. Prostitute came running after our cab when we turned into our street thinking the
    driver wanted sex, despite all of the police blitz we’ve been hearing of @Nesil_Caliskan

  20. Leftists ideology is materialistics & sex oriented.

    It’s male members are Tharki.
    Females are porn star. For money they can go to any level.
    It’s their profession. Where from free gosht,
    wine, chakhna will come? all jugad from FF, ISI, CIA
    Is it @DeShobhaa @ashutosh83B crab

  21. Pick your best color from a wide range of winter neutrals including,
    Rimmel London ‘Steel Grey’, China Glaze ‘Recycle’, Deborah Lippmann ‘Waking up in Vegas’ available at Amazon online store.
    This happens because this is where you will find a wide range of options you can turn to, you will have quite a few
    sites you can visit and you can take the time in order to compare the offers they have
    in store that will meet your budget. If you want to be sure you will cover a lot of ground
    fast and you will have all the time you need in order to browse through
    the best escorts London you can find, you should turn to the web for results.
    Europe is also a great source you can turn to for
    an escort in London that will live up to your demands.
    Of course, the 1st issue you will need to do following your extended trip to Istanbul is fill yourself up on the
    great local cuisine, and where greater to begin than with a Turkish Kebab Home.


  23. Chatous is one of the most famous social networking sites in the market.
    It is one of the best chatting applications in the market.
    Want a little more than just regular old text chatting? Despite the clinical insights into PIED we were able to
    gain from Zava doctors, and anecdotal evidence from Faulkner, there remained very little information available on the topic.
    Despite being a big dog, Larry can be a little unsure when meeting
    new people but he quickly makes friends when someone plays with him and his favourite toys; tennis balls.

    Also, it will allow you to find people according to their countries.
    If you are inactive, then it will automatically set the chat video.
    Our server chat rooms are busy around the clock. Camchoice
    has been collecting live webcam sites and
    adult video chat rooms since 2003. In our webcam
    directory you can find links to the best live sex webcam sites with many beautiful webcam girls,
    cam guys and kinky fetish cams.

  24. Whether you’re using a smartphone or even a tablet, you’ll be able to watch our cam girls on the go.
    If you like it hardcore or in HD or even a fetish, you’ll
    find it here. Every time you come back here looking for something to satisfy your sex hunger, you will
    find this something – and it will definitely be a brand-new scene you haven’t seen before!

    She added: “Since I started camming, I haven’t signed on. Cam2cam means these babes will be able to watch you enjoying them and that’ll only turn them on even more. You can watch couples have sex in front of you in real time and actually communicate with them. Alex’s eyes of time we sat down blouse that as the one I realised she briefly toyed with him, free webcams chat could take. Expect Live Video Chats with real hot women and men so, all out on free or private video sex shows.

  25. Luke and Manny said goodbye, with Luke asking, ‘How come you
    never wrote a poem for me? Poetry talk: Luke and Manny said
    goodbye, with Luke asking, ‘How come you never wrote a poem for me?
    Claire and Phil came home to learn that all of their
    kids were moving out: Alex, to Switzerland, Haley and Dylan to a new apartment, and Luke to school
    at the University of Oregon. Phil found Claire standing in an empty
    bedroom, reminiscing about their early days as the kids
    walked in and out. As the series finale opened,
    Claire and Phil were camping in an RV in their driveway to
    escape the craziness in their home, which they now shared with three kids and a pair of twins.
    At his new home, Mitchell raved about the light, the karaoke room and the pediatrician next door.
    As the show closed, Cam, Mitchell and the kids were on the plane, Haley and Dylan moved into the
    couple’s old home, Phil and Claire wrote their RV plans on the calendar, and Jay and
    Gloria attended Joe’s soccer game. Life is full of change, some big, some small,’ Jay said in voiceover.

  26. estaba en omegle y lo vi, yo estaba súper emocionado (no grité,
    solo dije “ruben, eres tu?”) y de ahí pasó otro>cha> sin siquiera hablarme.
    Creo que mi>cámar> no le cargó.
    yo juraba que me había topado era una fancam falsa, pero cuando vi la foto me di cuenta que fue
    el real

  27. In that small group of people you could find your big tipper!
    Creating an email newsletter is also great to let
    people know of upcoming shows you are doing, thus making sure
    your fans show up and send you money. Also bad for the best models as it means their big fans
    cannot give us much tips. Growing an audience of dedicated fans doing this is inevitable.

    But camming, I’ve only been doing for three weeks.” “And everyone likes
    a fresh face. I’ve seen so many girls do this, it makes me want
    to scream! They always ask how you’re doing, what’s
    currently happening in your life, or want to know what
    your personal interests are. It has never been easier or quicker
    to find a model you want to watch. We even gave
    our phones to one another for our fingerprints to be in it for
    easier access. There’s a lot less nudity available on Live Jasmin in free chat
    however if you’re a paying customer it’s probably one of
    if not the best cam sites available. It’s important to
    note that you’ll be earning those 20% forever, i.e.
    as long as you’re a cam model on the site.

  28. What i do not realize is actually how you are no longer really much more smartly-appreciated than you may be now.
    You are very intelligent. You know therefore significantly with regards to this subject,
    produced me for my part believe it from so many varied angles.

    Its like women and men don’t seem to be fascinated until it’s one thing to
    accomplish with Lady gaga! Your personal stuffs nice. At all times maintain it up!

  29. Unquestionably believe that which you stated.
    Your favorite justification seemed to be on the web the simplest thing to be aware of.

    I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people consider worries that they just do not
    know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out
    the whole thing without having side-effects , people could take a signal.
    Will probably be back to get more. Thanks

  30. I cam across a thread on Quora about cheap and affordable live sex cams and came to know
    that this industry is real and girls are genuine. His girlfriends came
    quickly got just coming back here? My Podcast, Nat Chat, is
    LIVE and you can get the first episodes right here!
    At Live Jasmine Video Chat, You will have no problem
    in finding the cam performers prepared to satisfy
    you. Kamni capsule eliminates frigidity problem in women. That seems odd with the
    advent of dating apps, but maybe it’s a paradox of choice problem.

    I think you definitely need to try this game: it’s very addictive and characters are like a walking wet dream!
    Specifically, what do you do if you’re a college student or
    recent grad who feels like they don’t fit in the world of grades,
    lecture halls, and one size fits all careers?
    However having followed these links many times I have still to find one which was real for both cell and residential.

  40. Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole my
    apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a forty foot drop,
    just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and she has 83 views.
    I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

  41. Aw, this was a really good post. Taking the time and actual effort to produce a very good article… but what can I
    say… I put things off a lot and don’t manage to get anything done.

  42. Maybe it’s a work problem -perhaps he’s not remotely busy and is frantically worrying about keeping it all going.
    During 2013, data suggested that Toledo already enjoyed some success in combating the trafficking problem.
    I am glad you enjoyed it mdscoggins. In many cases, parents are
    working and stressing about how to make ends meet in the
    current economy. This Vicious cycle are initiated by people such as yourself who jumps from relationship to relationship instead working on their vows or breaking
    up in order that they may seek counseling for self awareness, working on their character,
    morality and becoming whole again. Among the other phobias and fears that you can get
    help defeating with this app are flying, public speaking, injections, heights, dogs, claustrophobia, being alone, water, agoraphobia, driving and
    visiting the dentist. I lied. “All I need you to do is take me to the bank, so I can pay you. Then I need you to forget that you ever saw me or chartered your boat to me.” He looked suspicious, and
    he started to say something, but I guess money won over scruples, so he simply nodded his head and we hit a small bank
    in the Marina.

  45. Definitely consider that that you stated. Your favorite reason appeared to be on the net the simplest thing to take into accout of.
    I say to you, I certainly get annoyed whilst folks think about worries

    the nail upon the highest as well as defined out the whole thing
    without having side effect , people can take a
    signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks
