Atlanta Streets Alive will cap biggest year yet on Sunday

New, 8 comments

Atlanta Streets Alive runs from 2 to 6 p.m.; bicycle parade lineup at 1:30

The occasional (some might say too occasional) street party known as Atlanta Streets Alive, which drew a combined 179,000 Atlantans last year, brings locals the opportunity to flood the roads from 2 to 6 p.m. Sunday on a nearly three mile stretch of Peachtree — from Edgewood to 17th Street.

It'll cap the biggest year yet for what's become a signature Atlanta event. Streets Alive will host four different gatherings in 2016 — the most ever — beginning with that expansive southside route this spring, which by all accounts was a resounding success.

As always, the Sunday event is open to folks on foot, bike, and pretty much anything without a motor, in an effort to bring together residents, community groups, and businesses and "create a whole new healthy, sustainable, and vibrant city street experience."

The streets will temporarily close to cars during the four-hour period.

The gathering also includes a bicycle parade lineup at 1:30 p.m at the intersection of 16th and Peachtree streets. The parade, like the whole event itself, is free and open to everyone.
