Do you really need a reason to don your favorite costume [or Star Trek uniform] and skip through a maze of music, food and art behind a manly butterfly and Seed & Feed Marching Abominables (you gotta see it to believe it)? I don't! But I'm so glad The Inman Park festival's parade gives me an excuse to do just that. Of all Atlanta's many happenings this spring, I am most looking forward to the peace & love spirit of this festival. Other fun activites include: The 2011 Tour of Homes, Atlanta's largest street market, Live bands on three stages, Performances from five local dance companies, and the Kidszone.
Hope to see you there! Look for a 'cute mom over 40' Star Trek Lt (Next Generation) covered in powdered sugar, surrounded by 4 civilians (3 chatty kids and a bewildered football coach).Inman Park Festival: Free! April 30, 11 a.m.-8:30 p.m.; May 1, 11 a.m.-7 p.m.. Euclid Avenue N.E. and Elizabeth Street N.E., Atlanta. 770-635-3711, http://www.inmanparkfestival.org/.
