Fourth of July in Buckhead

The Fourth of July is just around the corner, and our community is brimming with activities for metro Atlanta residents and tourists alike.  The Buckhead Community Improvement District has been working hard to make our community more livable, so you can enjoy Atlanta’s patriotic celebrations!  Look for BCID’s efforts on display at these local events:

Peachtree Road Race

The AJC and Atlanta Track Club’s Fourth of July tradition takes runners through the heart of Buckhead.  This year, runners will have a safer route along Buckhead Atlanta (formerly the Streets of Buckhead) on Peachtree Road.  Construction previously blocked the existing sidewalks, making it unsafe for pedestrians, but recently, the BCID had the construction barriers moved back and replaced with temporary sidewalks – just in time for Peachtree Road Race participants!

Lenox Mall Fireworks

Lenox Mall has always produced spectacular fireworks displays after the sun sets on the Fourth of July, but this year they are adding a new, delicious event – Taste of the Fourth.  For a $10 admissions ticket (which benefits the Atlanta Mission), you can sample food from local restaurants and reserve a spot to view one of the largest fireworks displays in the Southeast.

Walking and driving to Lenox Mall is getting a whole lot easier, thanks to BCID’s Peachtree Boulevard Transformation.  We are currently installing 11,500 linear feet of new 11-foot wide sidewalks, complete with new oak shade trees, 188 new pedestrian and street lights, modern benches.  In addition to the streetscape, we are a constructing new planted median with dedicated left turn lanes, new bike lanes and crosswalks to help you get to future fireworks shows safely!
