May brings another festival to Atlanta, the Kirkwood Spring Fling and Tour of Homes in the Kirkwood neighborhood south of Candler Park. The event has a 5k, artist market, children’s area, beer and food to enjoy.
The location of the festival is Bessie Branham Park at 2051 Delano Drive. The closest MARTA station is East Lake on the blue rail line, which is about a 20-minute walk away. Take the College Avenue/South Parking exit out of the station and at street level, turn right on College Avenue then left on Norwood Avenue and walk about three blocks (see walking map). Bring your bike with you on the train for a shorter commute.
You can also take bus 24 from the East Lake or Candler Park Station. The bus travels along the park. Be sure to check www.itsmarta.com or the MARTA Facebook page the day of the festival to check on any service changes due to festival road closures.
