Peachtree Street—from south of Underground to Arts Center—was closed to cars Sunday afternoon as downtown and Midtown celebrated Atlanta Streets Alive.
The last in this year’s calendar of pedestrian-friendly events, the Peachtree celebration (along with a bit of Broad Street in South Downtown) brought tens of thousands of people out to revel in walkability on Atlanta’s most famous street.
The nearly three-mile course stretched from Mitchell Street to 17th Street.
Crowds came out to enjoy cycling, skating, walking, and playing in the beautiful sunshine—a welcome change from the rain that soaked last year’s celebration.
