The streets of Emory Village will be blocked off to vehicular traffic this Sunday for an afternoon of family fun and festivities.

"Open Streets Emory Village" runs from 2 to 6 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 27, featuring a Halloween parade that kicks off at 2. The festival will also include live music, food and drinks, circus performers, a rock wall and more.

In addition to wearing your own costume, you’re encouraged to dress up your pup for a dog costume contest. There will be plenty of kid-friendly options, including a “trunk or treat,” a rubber duckie race and the “Bubble Man.”

North Decatur Road from the CVS to the roundabout will be closed to automobile traffic, as well as the southern portion of Oxford Road. If you want to drive to the festival, you can park in the Emory parking deck at Barnes & Noble.

Open Streets Emory Village is organized by the Emory Village Alliance in an effort to promote walkability and showcase the neighborhood.
