5th annual Art in Avondale Park, Avondale Park

This event keeps getting bigger and better. Come to the corner of 41st Street South and 5th Avenue South with the kids for an art-filled day in the park. There will be lots of hands-on activities, pony rides, music and dance, booths full of well-known and emerging artists, and a silent auction featuring work by Larry Langford, Birmingham’s mayor-elect. One of the event’s highlights is the children’s parade at 10:30 a.m. The parade leaves Avondale Elementary and takes a route through Forest Park Village, down 39th Street and into the park. These kids are cute so come cheer them on. The fun continues after 4 when the Avondale Business District opens its doors for an evening Open House Tour featuring food, entertainment, prizes, hayrides and carriage rides. Rain date is October 28. You can find more information and pictures from last year, here.
