It’s time for the whole family to break out the costumes and walk, bike, or roll on down to Open Streets Emory Village on Sunday, October 27, from 2 to 6 p.m.
As usual, the Halloween Parade kicks will kick off at the day at 2, so dress accordingly and bring your pups for the Dog Costume Contests (Best Costume and Best-in-Show). Glenn Trunk or Treat will be back for the kiddos, and you can expect the rubber duckie race at 5 p.m., the Bubble Man (weather permitting), and much, much more.
All your favorites will be there: live music, food and brews, face painting, circus performers, the model railroad, robots, street games, dancing, 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 (new this year: interactive activities like juggling classes and plate spinning), climb the giant rock wall, and sample food from the many Village businesses.
There will be 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.
