Here's How ATL CRE Showed Its Independence

Parades, cookouts, hot dog selling and even lake surfing. We got the roundup of how many of our readers spent their 4th of July holiday weekend.

North American Properties' Liz Gillespie donned the red, white and blue during the firm's first annual 4th on the Square event at its recently acquired Colony Square in Midtown. The event took place yesterday with music, food and a place for spectators to watch the Peachtree Road Racers.

Core5 Industrial Partners' Lisa Ward braved the heat and the crowds to run the Peachtree along with her daughter Madison (far left) and niece Emily Backus, in town from Michigan. The trio enjoyed some Mellow Mushroom pizza along the way.

Raulet Property Partners' Paul Raulet and his niece Lissie Raulet were showboating on a surfboard on Lake Burton this weekend.

Pursley Friese Torgrimson's Stephanie Friese Aron and her son got to ride with Elmo during the Virginia-Highland Morningside Parents' Association Parade. Let's just say the red overpowered the white and blue here.

Joel & Granot's principal Alan Joel has been touring Europe throughout the holidays. Here he snapped a pic of his time exploring the catacombs underneath Paris. Next up is walking the Camino de Santiago and then running with the bulls in Pamplona.

Comcast's Alex Horwitz, whose company is fighting the new gigabit war in Atlanta against Google Fiber and other players, was spotted off the coast of Marathon Key, fishing with his family. Alex admitted he caught very little in the way of actual fish, though (little being the operative word).

NAI Brannen Goddard's Brad Pope is demonstrating why he needs his own show on Food Network with a tempting selection of ribs, grilled corn and peaches, all fired up on a Big Green Egg.

Beacon Management's Lisa Simmons sparkled on the pool deck overlooking Midtown at 1280 West Peachtree Condominiums, which had a view of multiple firework displays. She also got to see firsthand AMLI's new tower going up on Spring Street.

Gring's Robbie Gring and her husband, Dale Campbell, launched a new business called 3-Bites-of-Fun with a Hot Diggity Dog cart. The duo grilled up bite-sized sausage dogs using Robbie's grandfather's recipe at its debut in Bryson City, NC.

Niles Bolton Associates' Stephanie Kirkpatrick struck out for an adventure in Wisconsin—that was not cheesy. She and her BFF from Virginia Tech, Jenny Hecker, went horseback riding and golfing at Whistling Straits during the long Independence Day holiday weekend.
