  Piedmont Park festival
by flannery2

Piedmont Park is a well-used and loved park located in the heart of the Midtown neighborhood, starting at 10th and Piedmont and going several blocks north and east. The park is the site of several festivals and outdoor concerts throughout the year, such as the Dogwood Festival in April where artists from all over the country set up tents along the paths. You can bike, skate, take a leisurely stroll or have a cookout or picnic (and even pop a bottle of beer or wine while you're at it without worry--it's legal to drink in the park). Skateboarders perform tricks on the weekend at the 12th Street and Piedmont end of the park and musicians like to accompany them for the crowds that gather to watch.
