Atlanta Streets Alive will be hitting the Westside for the very first time on Sunday, June 11, and 100,000 people are expected to ditch their cars for the evening.

A four-mile stretch of Howell Mill Road and Marietta Street will be closed to cars, but open to those walking, riding bikes and skating. The event kicks off at 4 p.m. with the Great Bicycle Parade (see the route at this link) and lasts until 8 p.m.

Hosted by the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition, the event will be filled with family-friendly activities including:

  • Artist Showdown: Two artists going head-to-head on 6’ X 6’ canvases
  • Face painting
  • A mini-race demo of adult size Big Wheels
  • Live music
  • Line dance and Zumba classes
