The garden tour is from 9:00am-3:00pm in the Huntley Hills neighborhood. Tickets can be purchased for $10 in advance at the Ashe-Simpson Garden Center or on Saturday at 3747 Longview Drive.
The Taste of Chamblee street festival is in front of Chamblee City Hall at 5468 Peachtree Road. There will be a variety of restaurants offering sample sizes of their food, ranging from authentic Chinese to pizza, BBQ, hand-made chocolates, ice cream, smoothies & more! You can purchase 8 tickets for $10 which can be exchanged for one food sample each (additional tickets will be $1.50). In addition to the restaurants there will be a beer garden and several performers. Starting off the festival is a steel drum percussion quintet and ending it is a bluesy-rock group called Misconduct. In the midst of the festival, you’ll catch a mariachi band, samba dancers, a fencing demonstration and even a Chinese lion dance! Finally there is a silent auction raising money for Special Olympics Georgia. Here you can make a bid to win a spectacular bottle of Cristal Champagne, a handmade Persian rug, a set of antique skis, among many other items. The festival lasts from 4:00pm – 8:00pm. Last bid for the silent auction is at 7:00pm.
