Park it, y'all!

Hear ye, Hear ye! City of Atlanta just released the 2009 wheres for some of our city's most beloved and attended events. Particularly exciting is the Peachtree Road Race finish's move back to 10th Street. Last year's home stretch along Juniper was a hellish change of pace from 10th Street's smooth descent, not to mention the David Bowie-esque labyrinthe participants were funneled into post-race. Also of note: a new fall date for the Pride festival.

Additional details from the press release:

The Organizers agreed to the following arrangements.

Dogwood Festival will be held in Piedmont Park on April 3-5, 2009.

Screen on the Green will be held in Centennial Park starting on May 29, 2009.

The Atlanta Jazz Festival will continue its Memorial Day tradition in Grant Park.

The Peachtree Road Race will be held on the Fourth of July starting at Lenox Square and ending on 10th Street. T-Shirt distribution and family gatherings will be held in the Meadow at Piedmont Park.

Atlanta Pride, originally scheduled for June 26-28, 2009 at Central Park, has now been moved outside the festival season and will take place on October 31-November 2, 2009, at Piedmont Park.
