Get a taste of both visual and performing arts with a week of puppet camp! Campers will learn about the different types of puppetry, make 2-3 puppets and write short scripts based on familiar folktales or myths. Instruction on puppet manipulation and rehearsal led by a professional puppeteer from Piccadilly Puppets will prepare the class to put on a fun original puppet show!

Organized by Atlanta Bicycle Coalition, our third Atlanta Streets Alive (ASA) of the year will take place on Sunday, September 25th from 2pm-6pm. Come celebrate four Eastside neighborhoods on North Highland, Highland Ave, and Boulevard!

We’ll close the streets to cars and open them to people. Bring your bicycle or your feet, and get ready to explore your community streets in a safer, healthier, more livable way.

Though you may “start” anywhere along the route, the kickoff will happen at Virginia Ave & North Highland Ave. The Atlanta Streets Alive Bicycle Parade will line up at 1:30 at this location, and roll down the route at 2pm.

The Piccadilly Puppets Van will be parked along the route! We will perform short pop-up shows, strolling puppetry, and interactive activities.

Sunday, September 25, 2016 2-6 pm
