Inman Park Festival Set for April

Sure it may just be March 1, but all of us at Fontis Water can not wait to be a part of the 2013 Inman Park Festival. This year’s festival will take place April 26-28, 2013.

The festival, which is held the last weekend of every April, is free, except for the Tour of Homes. The Inman Park Spring Festival takes place in one of Atlanta’s oldest and most scenic neighborhoods. First developed in the late 1800s, Inman Park is home to many historic homes and parks. The Festival began in the early 1970s as a means to attract attention to gentrification efforts that sought to revitalize the community.

Now celebrating its 42nd anniversary, the festival offers something for everybody. There will be live music, kids activities, a Tour of Homes, a marvelous street parade, an artists’ market, and some of the city’s best people-watching. Why not come early, stay late, and see why this festival is often called one of Atlanta’s best street festivals!

On Friday, the Tour of Homes will run from Noon until
4:00 PM (there are no other Festival events on Friday.) On Saturday and Sunday the Tour of Homes will run from Noon until 6:00 PM. On Saturday, the Festival (excluding the Tour of Homes) will begin at 11:00 AM and end at 8:30 PM. On Sunday, the festival times are 11:00 AM until 7:00 PM. The Tour of Homes cost $20.

The festival will of course include great park food, including pizza, barbecue, gyros, sandwiches and yes … funnel cakes! Local restaurants will also be open for business.
