Celebrate Law Day 2010 at Piedmont Park
Bring the family and join the fun at Piedmont Park on Saturday, April 10 as the annual Law Day public celebration kicks off with a 5K race, followed by music, art, food and an all-American good time at the park.
The day begins with the 10th annual Legal Runaround, a 5K race, walk and tot trot benefiting the Atlanta Bar Foundation. Pets and strollers welcome. Registration begins at 7:30a.m. Preregistration is $15 if received by April 8. $20 if received after April 8. For registration information, call 404-832-6210 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
After the race relax at the park’s Main Pavilion. Enjoy music, a kid’s art contest, snow cones, popcorn, cotton candy and other treats. Tour law-related booths and get a close-up look at equipment exhibits by the Atlanta Police Department and other public safety agencies.
In addition to cool give-a-ways, Fulton Emergency Management will have a 9-1-1 simulator of their actual computer-aided dispatch equipment, a display board with important tips about dialing 9-1-1 and a safety video.
And don’t miss the highlight of Law Day: recognition of outstanding public safety officers and court employees, including the Liberty Bell Award, Fulton County Court Employee of the Year, Peace Officer of the Year and prizes for the winners of the kid’s art contest.
Law Day has been observed since 1950 as an opportunity for all Americans to reflect on the rule of law and the foundations of our legal system. It’s a time to celebrate the rich history of our judicial system and a time to consider its future in this rapidly changing world.
Law Day 2010 is sponsored by: The Fulton County Courts, The Atlanta Bar Foundation, The Atlanta Police Department, The Multi-Bar Leadership Council, King & Spalding, Weinstock and Scavo, P.C., ALSTON + BIRD, LLP, FELLOWS LaBRIOLA, Hawkins & Parnell, LLP.
