Explore some of America's oldest neighbourhoods during the best spring street party east of the the Mississippi, the Inman Park Festival. The neighbourhood, located just to the east of downtown Atlanta, was one of first garden suburbs in America and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Every year, the locals enthusiastically host a festival during the last weekend in April where visitors can enjoy a parade of floats, marching bands, street performers, and art exhibitions. The festival also includes a huge street market and the 'Tour of Homes', when locals open up their Victorian homes to the public. There is also live entertainment in all its forms, from ballet dancers to rock bands, and a host of activities like pony rides, miniature golf, and rock climbing.

Venue: Inman Park, Euclid Avenue

Date: Last week of April annually
