Atlanta Streets Alive

On Sunday October 7th, 2012, Atlanta Streets Alive will return to North Highland Avenue for four hours — from 2pm-6pm.

Two miles of North Highland plus one mile of Virginia Avenue plus just about two miles of the brand new Atlanta BeltLine Eastside Trail means we will have almost FIVE miles of car-free community space to ride, walk, play, dance and rock and roll.

Look for activities all along the route including local acoustic musicians, a capella groups, marching bands, alongside classes such as salsa dancing, yoga, zumba and thousands of people out riding their bikes.

More info here.

Date: 
Sun, 10/07/2012 - 2:00pm - 6:00pm
Location: 
Two miles of North Highland (Glen Iris to Virginia Ave) + one mile of Virginia Ave + two miles of the BeltLine Eastside Trail

Candler Park Movie Night: Back to the Future - rescheduled for this Saturday

Rescheduled for this Saturday, September 15 due to inclement weather last weekend. Don't miss it!

---

The people of Candler Park have spoken! The polls are closed and the winner of the viewer’s choice movie is Back To The Future!  Some of you may be thinking, who has not seen this movie? But have you seen Back to the Future’s digitally re-mastered High Definition twenty-fifth anniversary version on BluRay on a three story screen under the stars in Candler Park’s natural amphitheater? I don’t think so.

Before the movie starts on September 8, there will be awesome pre-movie activities starting at 6:30 pm, put on by our friends at the Mary Lin PTA! They’ll be helping us get in the groove of the movie’s era withswingin’ 50s music, a hula hoop contest, limbo, a “Back”wards (get it?) running contest, and a bunch of great prizes.  Kids – wear your poodle skirt, rockabilly clothes, bowling shirts or whateversignals “I’m back from the 50s” – best outfit wins a prize!

So this Saturday, come down to Candler Park in front of the pool house to have dinner, and see a great movie with your neighbors.  This is all in addition to the usual musickids dancing mania that typically starts off movie night in Candler Park.

Candler Park Movie Night festivities start at 6:30 pm and the feature presentation will go on around 8:00 (sunset) in front of the poolhouse. You will want to get there early for the best spot!

Once again, well-behaved dogs on a leash are welcome. Bring your own coolers but be aware that GLASS containers or bottles are strictlyforbidden in city parks.  

Thanks to Park Pride/Friends of Candler Park / Epworth Methodist / Clifton House. Thanks to our sponsors BOND credit union, Front PageNews, Corner Tavern, Tijuana Garage, Candler Park Market, The Albert, CornerTavern and our Presenting sponsor the Candler Park Neighborhood Organization, without whom movie night would not be possible.

Sat, 09/15/2012 - 6:30pm - 9:30pm

New CP safety email list and CP Facebook page

Sep 5 2012

1) New safety email list - We've created a new CP safety email list and you can sign up here: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/candlerparksafety/

The main purpose will be to ensure everyone can get the word out quickly to residents when a crime has been committed in our neighborhood. It can also be used to share safety tips, and discuss any other safety related topics.

2) New Facebook page - CPNO finally has a Facebook page. Please go here: http://www.facebook.com/CandlerPark and "like" it so you'll get updates in your friend feed. Also, spread the word to others.

As a sidenote, we're a bit late to the FB page party because a commercial entity created FB pages for all the intown neighborhoods, got big fan bases, and then abandoned them; they have been unwilling to hand over the admin credentials. So now we're starting from scratch. Not ideal but we'll make the new page great! :)
