The third Atlanta Streets Alive event of the year is set for Sunday, Sept. 25, from 2 to 6 p.m. in the Virginia-Highland, Poncey-Highland and Old Fourth Ward neighborhoods. The event is an initiative of the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition.

A 3-mile stretch of North Highland Avenue, Highland Avenue and Boulevard will be closed to motorized vehicles and open to people on foot, bike, skates and skateboards.

Participants can expect a wealth of activities hosted by community organizations and businesses along the route, with local businesses and restaurants expanding onto the sidewalks to attract customers.

As usual, ASA will kick off with a bicycle parade at 2 p.m. at the intersection of Virginia and North Highland avenues. Be sure to visit for an announcement about the theme so that you can dress up yourself and your bike accordingly.

The final ASA will be held on Oct. 23 and take over Peachtree Street from Midtown to Downtown.
