Atlanta.  View specially commissioned murals along South Broad Street and enjoy a vibrant street party with live music, dancing, playing, and painting.  http://www.ocaatlanta.com/Elevatesouthbroad

Inman Park Beer Chase 5K & Beer Fest – Saturday, 10/27/12, 11 am to 4 pm

Only a place like Inman Park could combine exercise and drinking beer all to benefit the Inman Park Neighborhood Security Patrol.  The fee to participate in the race is $30 and the Beer Festival is $40 in advance and $45 at the event.  There is a combo ticket option, but I wasn’t able to figure out the cost, sorry.  For the Beer Festival, you will receive your own tasting glass and can sample up to 100 craft beers.  The race begins at 11 am at the corner of Lake Avenue and Elizabeth Street and the festival will be on Elizabeth Street between N. Highland and Lake Ave.  Parking for the event will be at the Stoveworks parking lot at 112 Krog Street  http://www.inmanparkbeerchase.com/
