The City is excited to announce it will be hosting its first ever Lantern Parade! Save the date for April 21, at 7 p.m. This event will be hosted by the Avondale Arts Alliance along with the DeKalb School of the Arts (DSA). Celebrate the community and the arts by parading through the beautiful Avondale Estates neighborhood, wind around Lake Avondale for a spectacular display and cut through the woods pathway to Avonwood where the parade will end at DSA's campus for a celebration featuring student performances and kicking off their 30th Anniversary and Annual Fringe Festival!
