We're calling on everybody in our community to contribute a positive and uplifting message that makes people smile. Get creative for your chance to earn a custom Midtown reusable face mask from us by taking part in any of these fun activities.
Shall We Dance?
Record a short video of you and a friend engaged in an epic dance battle on the sidewalk. Here's how:
Head to the "Social distancing dance-off" sidewalk decal at West Peachtree and 14th Streets (southeast corner).
Stand 6 ft apart on the decal and be sure to each wear a face mask.
Film your dance-off (less than one minute is great) and show us your best moves.
Post it, tag us, and we'll make a you a star on social media. @MidtownATL (Facebook, Twitter) @Midtown_ATL (Insta) #KeepMidtownOpen
While we wait for the first videos from the community, here's something to get you inspired.
Other Sidewalk Activities
Snap a pic or shoot a video clip of you and a friend masked up and having fun with another activity as suggested on the sidewalk decals we've placed throughout the district. Be on the lookout for virtual hugs, hopscotch, and more. Post your good time at the decals - remember to wear a face covering and stay 6ft apart - tag us, and we'll celebrate you in the Twitterverse. @MidtownATL (Facebook, Twitter) @Midtown_ATL (Insta) #KeepMidtownOpen
Standup at the Sink
The CDC recommends frequent handwashing for at least 20 seconds. Here's something else to do instead of singing "Happy Birthday" again to pass the time in front of the faucet.
Record a 20-second video washing your hands at the sink while you tell us a funny joke.
For this one, it may be easier to get help from a friend to film you.
Make us laugh, and keep it clean!
Submit your entry to us at Info@MidtownATL.com. We'll edit and post the best ones on social media. #KeepMidtownOpen

Design a Hopeful Message for Midtown
Right now, everyone could use an encouraging message to get through these tough times. Help us design a street banner that's just for Midtown, with original graphics and a tagline that can lift up the neighborhood.
What are your ideas for a compelling image and a short message (aim for 5-7 words max) that can lift up the Midtown community right now?
We'll convene a panel of judges to choose the best ones, and selected entries will be printed and installed on light poles later this year.
If none of these creative activities fit the bill for you, suggest something to us. What can we do together as a community that will help keep Midtown open and emerge stronger from this difficult year? We're listening. Shoot us an e-mail anytime and share your ideas.
