On Saturday, June 26th, the Westview neighborhood celebrated its 100th birthday. The Westview Centennial Celebration took place at KIPP STRIVE Academy, the new charter middle school next to the BeltLine.
The day’s activities started with a 5K sponsored by the BeltLine, followed by a ribbon cutting ceremony for the opening of the Westview portion of the BeltLine Model Mile.
The celebrations continued with music by RnB band In The Pocket, house music by DJs Ryze, Drew, and Ramon Rawsoul, puppet shows and storytelling for young and old, vendors selling organic soaps, prints and more, and some friendly rivalry between the grill-off contestants over who would win the public’s heart for their chicken and rib recipes.
Additionally, the Westview Community Organization would like to thank the following people for making the Westview Centennial Celebration happen:
