On April 25-27, 2014 this granddaddy among intown festivals will be staged for the 43rd time.
Visitors can do the Tour of Homes on April 25, and will discover modest bungalows and eye-popping Queen Anne, Italianate and Romanesque mansions.
While the sketchy is gone, the funky remains. Inman Park has its own style, on full display at the parade April 26, with its precision drill teams of briefcase-carrying executives and lawnmower-pushing homeowners. Last year, the festival attempted to set a record for most gnomes in a parade, and may try again this year.
The artist’s market includes a juried section. Several stages offer musical entertainment, amusement for children abounds, and if the craft beer doesn’t lure you in, the smell of funnel cakes in boiling oil surely will.
Tour of Homes, noon-4 p.m. April 25; noon-6 p.m. April 26-27. (There are no other events on April 25 besides the Tour of Homes.) $20; $15 in advance.
The Parade is 2 p.m. Saturday April 26 (rain or shine). It begins Edgewood and Euclid and runs to Austin Ave. at the foot of Little Five Points. - See more at: inmanparkfestival.org/events/parade/
