Inman Park Spring Festival

Spring is certainly sprung with great gusto in historic Inman Park each year. The neighbourhood, located just to the east of downtown Atlanta, was one of America's first garden suburbs and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Every year the locals enthusiastically put on a festival during the last weekend in April, delighting spectators with a colourful parade of floats, marching bands, entertainers and all manner of quirky participants. The festival also includes a huge street market and the 'Tour of Homes', when locals open up their homes ranging from Victorian bungalows to modern lofts, to the public. There is also live entertainment in many guises, from ballet to rock, and a host of activities like pony rides and rock climbing. The festival hotline is (770) 242 4895.

Venue: Inman Park, Euclid Avenue

Date: 25 - 27 April 2014
