Between 6 p.m. and 11 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 14, downtown residents, businesses and community leaders plan to bring some life to the South Broad Street and transform the block with "art, pop-up shops, street performers, food trucks, al fresco dining, tactical urbanism," and more. The "Brighten Up Broad Street" event is organized by the Atlanta Downtown Neighborhood Association with support from Central Atlanta Progress, Intown Property Management, LAZ Parking, MARTA, and others. What to expect, according to the event's website:
Munch — Pan-Asian street food serving everything from Bánh mì to Southern sushi
Streatery — all-natural beef hot dogs, veggie dogs, and more
Miller’s Rexall — a third generation family business established 1965, home of Run Devil Run
Fallen Arrows — eco-conscious t-shirts from local artists
JimiFlix! — fine art photography
The Imperial OPA Circus & Band — astounding and sensational entertainment
Team Artboy! — ready to draw your caricature
Atlanta Movie Tours — trace the footsteps of your favorite television and movie characters
The get-together has attracted interest — according to the group's Facebook event page, more than 85 people have signed up to attend.
