Sunday In The Park

blackmon_oaklandcemetery.jpg
Few places in Atlanta are as incredibly lovely as Oakland Cemetery. Part of the beauty comes from the stones and statues that stand for the dearly departed, but beyond that … you have to admire such a grand expanse of predominantly green space that has yet to be recycled into another unnecessary real estate opportunity.

This Sunday, October 2, the Historic Oakland Foundation is hosting their annual Victorian Street Festival. “Sunday In The Park” will feature food, story tellers, an artist’s market, tours of the grounds and even an era-appropriate costume contest (lots of velvet corsets, most likely).

Admission is $1.

    Awesome! Thanks for posting this. I’ve been meaning to go to Oakland to take pictures for a while now. Supposedly I have plans Sunday, but perhaps I could work this in…
