Join Car-Free Fun on Sunday, Oct. 29, 2017 at Open Streets Emory Village


Bring the whole family, and walk, bike and roll to the Village for the Fifth Annual Open Streets Emory Village on Sunday, October 29, from 2 to 6 p.m.

The Halloween Parade kicks off at 2 p.m., so dress accordingly and bring your pups for the Dog Costume Contest starting at 3. New for this year: Glenn “Trunk or Treat” and the Bubble Man.

All your favorites will be there: live music, food and brews, face painting, the Puppet Factory, street games, the giant climbing wall, 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.

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

will be non-stop music from a variety of performers, as well as dance demonstrations, a fire truck and police car 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.
