The Little 5 Points Halloween Festival & Parade is the signature Halloween festival in the southeast and one of the top ten Halloween events in the country. It is staged in Little 5 Points, Atlanta’s premiere business, arts and music district. Each October, over 35,000 people flock to Little 5 Points to enjoy great food and drink, live entertainment and the best Halloween parade in the South! http://l5phalloween.com/
This event will begin at 2:00 p.m., when we meet up for a little pre-game/get-to-know-you at the Wrecking Bar Brew Pub. Look for me there. I will be dressed as a pirate wench in an impressive black leather corset (if all goes according to plan).
The Wrecking Bar is located near the corner of Austin Ave and Moreland Ave at 292 Moreland Ave NE, Atlanta GA 30307. http://www.wreckingbarbrewpub.com/ Voted Best Brew Pub in Atlanta in 2011, the Wrecking Bar has its own parking lot and is near a parking garage. It also is within easy walking distance to two legs of the parade--Euclid Ave, where the parade begins, and Moreland Ave, where it doubles back and ultimately ends.
Following refreshments, we will walk (stagger?) to the parade start on Euclid Ave and Austin at 3:45 p.m. The parade begins at 4 p.m. After the parade, I will probably meet up with some Steampunkers (one of them is going to be my ride). You are welcome to tag along as well.
NOTE: I would strongly urge everyone to get there early for the best parking (just take whatever parking you can get) and, for heaven's sake, don't leave anything visible in your car!
