Festival with focus
A gathering that aims to raise awareness for Proctor Creek neighborhoods is set to return for the second year.
Creekside Community Festival, a Grove Park event with local art, music, education and ecology, will be held along the banks of Proctor Creek, about a mile from the Bankhead MARTA station in northwest Atlanta.
A goal of the event is to help “restore Proctor Creek” and its surrounding neighborhoods, according to Karen Rose, Grove Park Neighborhood Association chairperson. The Chattahoochee River tributary, which has been historically plagued by problems including pollution and flooding, winds through some long-impoverished parts of Atlanta.
