ATLANTA (April 25, 2019) – Colony Square invites the community to enjoy a collection of free weekly experiences, known as Signature Events, that begin May 1 and last through Sept. 25. This year’s Signature Events include the return of Yoga on the Square and the inaugural Groovin’ in The Grove, a live music series in Midtown’s newest urban park along the 14th street corridor.

“Whether it’s activating The Grove with local musicians or inviting yogis to namaste on The Square, we’re always looking for innovative ways to bring more energy to the heart of Midtown,” said Sara Carville, marketing coordinator at Colony Square. “We’re proud to offer the community our most exciting Signature Events lineup yet and look forward to showcasing Colony Square as a destination where people can gather and soak up Midtown’s vibe.”
