It’s almost here, one of our favorite festivals, Grant Park Summer Shade 2015. This year it’s August 29th and 30th and it will be the usual mix of great vendors, food and music. A few of the nice things about this festival are, A) it’s aptly named as there is plenty of shade so don’t let the August date scare you away B) it’s a very kid friendly festival and you’ll see plenty, but C) Grant Park is huge so even though there will be large crowds you won’t feel claustrophobic here and D) they always have the best music line-up. This year’s artists include Five-Eight, Whiskey Gentry, Bradford Cox and many more. Take MARTA, It’s smarta. Plus you can get in and out more easily. Or ride your bike as they’ll have valet service with security. So check out Grant Park and take some time to walk around the park to see the great old Victorian homes that make this neighborhood special.
