Atlantic Station is an ideal location for an art festival. An abundance of restaurants, decent bathrooms, good parking and an extremely pedestrian friendly area should yield a good turnout. Unfortunately, there did not appear to be many more patrons than the regular weekend crowd. I made it through with a few impulse buys, but without serious art shoppers it can be kind of rough. Where were they? Is it an new festival and people don't know about it yet? Were people really staying home because of the fear of not having enough gas to get around (which, BTW, I never waited in one line the entire time)?
Hopefully this weekend at Harvest Midtown will be better.
