A few of my favorite shots from last Saturday’s L5P Halloween Parade in Inman Park.
It’s time for the Little 5 Points Halloween Festival & Parade. This year the event is celebrating it’s 12th Anniversary. This is always a fun event and open to all ages and the public. It’s a great time to enjoy watching 0r wearing a costume while enjoying some great Little 5 Points fun and music. There will be funky arts for sale along with the regular retailers open for business. There will be food and drink aplenty with local restaurants along with some street vendors offering up their savory selections. If music is your pleasure – you will be rewarded with multiple options throughout the day.
The Parade starts at 4pm and lasts about 2 hours. There are decorated floats and marching bands and about anything else you can imagine in the ghoul realm along with a few things you probably never imagined. The parade is perfect for all ages and offers a little something for everyone. Beware of the candy thrown your way and the odd brussel sprout handed out for good trickery (thank you, Dad’s Garage!).
Located in Inman Park, Atlanta, Little 5 Points has limited parking and the best advice for travel to the event is MARTA or bike the belt line.
Saturday October 20, 2012 from noon to 10 pm | Parade starts at 4 pm

Inman Park Neighborhood | Atlanta, GA
Inman Park located in Atlanta, GA is just 2 miles east of downtown Atlanta. Inman Park is Atlanta’s first suburb & one of the Nation’s first garden suburbs. The neighborhood was developed in 1880’s by Joel Hurt who believed people should live in a country-like setting but still close to the business district. He insisted on large lots, curving streets, and parks throughout the neighborhood. With his help, the residences were connected to the 5 Points business district via a trolley system. The Trolley Barn which was the stop in Inman Park still available for rent for events & weddings.
Historic Inman Park or HIP to its friends, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Inman Park home styles include Victorian, Queen Anne, Dutch Colonial Revival, American Four Square, Craftsman bungalow, Shotgun home, Italianate Townhomes, condos, and lofts. You will find new construction homes alongside of the older homes. There are historic guidelines for renovation and new builds helping keeping the neighborhood’s roots tied to Hurt’s vision.
Inman Park proudly calls itself “Small Town Down Town” – having kept the community feel of a small town while being located in a HIP urban location. Active community involvement from the neighbors of Inman Park have built and sustained a thriving neighborhood association – Inman Park Neighborhood Association (IPNA) as well as the creation of Inman Park’s Security Patrol in cooperation of Atlanta Police Department. One of the best festivals in Metro Atlanta is the Inman Park Festival held each spring at the end of April.
Inman Park makes good use of its tree lined streets & sidewalks and features numerous restaurants, shops and parks – all within walking distance. Inman Park has a Marta station and the Atlanta Beltline project also runs along the corridor of the neighborhood. Freedom Park runs through the neighborhood and links Inman Park to adjoining neighborhoods.
