Fun with the Fam at the Fox Block Party

We had a blast at the Fox Block Party ! The city of Atlanta celebrated 40 years since the "Save the Fox Campaign". 

We enjoyed free music, food trucks, and a free tour of the Fox. 

Did you know the Fox offers a variety of tours? Including a ghost tour that they only offer in October. We will definitely be back for that! The tour took us from the seal of the shriners, to the egyptian ballroom, up through the balcony, and back out to the main auditorium. 

To get the most out of your tour ask questions. Ask about the man who lives at the Fox for a unique piece of Fox history. Our guide was full of fun facts and interesting personal stories. Our tour was a free a shortened version of their full 60 minute tour, priced at $20. It was a fun way to wrap up our afternoon out at the block party.

By the end of the event we were exhausted but I had a greater appreciation for The Fox and the neighborhood that supports it. I love festival season, it gives you a peak in to the culture of each neighborhood around Atlanta. Bonus, we logged over 7K steps while there.
