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

We’re welcoming summer with a “splash!”

We are so excited to announce the world premiere of our new show, Splish, Splash: Water Stories! Developed with the help of Project WET, this show explores our most precious resource in a fun and educational way! Large hand-puppets are used in the Australian folktale of “Tiddalick the Frog” and the Creek legend “Rabbit Plays Tug-of-War,” which demonstrate that water is important to all cultures. The original shadow puppet piece, “The Adventures of Drip and Drop,” shows the water-cycle from the point of view of the raindrops. As the closing song says, “Everybody needs a little water!” Best for ages 4-10.

See below for the schedule, including FREE performances!
