Highland Avenue in the Old Fourth Ward during Sunday’s Atlanta Streets Alive.

An estimated 82,300 Atlantans took part in the Atlanta Streets Alive event on Sunday, according to an update posted by the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition. Volunteers were stationed along the nearly five-mile route to help come up with the number of participants.

From 2-6 p.m., portions of Highland Avenue, Boulevard, Monroe and Virginia Avenue were closed to vehicular traffic creating a loop where people could walk, run, bike, skateboard and enjoy a myriad of events.
