Livable Buckhead’s Summer Event Series provides plenty of inspiration to get you out of the house, no matter what you’re into. Most of the events are free to the public, and reservations are encouraged through the Livable Buckhead website. The events kick off on June 4 with the buckheadRUN 5K race, but there is much more happening throughout the summer.
“There really is something for absolutely everyone,” said Denise Starling, executive director of Livable Buckhead. “We want to give people a reason to get out and enjoy the summer in Buckhead, and we particularly want to give them a reason to try out PATH400. All of the Summer Series events will take place on the trail or very nearby it, and we encourage everyone to walk or bike on PATH400 if they can.”
Here is the full list of recurring events, from the Livable Buckhead press release:
