I’m hoping that I can rework my schedule so that I can make it to the Children’s Christmas Parade in Atlanta. I love parades…they make me think of my mom.
On Saturday, December 1, the 2018 Children’s Christmas Parade will take place in Midtown. The parade steps off at 10:30 a.m. at Peachtree St. and 16th St. and ends at Peachtree St. and 5th St.
It should be a fun morning–there will be marching bands, dance groups, giant helium balloons, floats, & Santa Claus (of course).
If you’re heading out for the parade, consider taking MARTA, as you’ll be joining hundreds of thousands of your closest friends. The Midtown and Arts Center Stations are located along the parade route.
Want to skip out on the crowds & traffic? You can watch the parade live on WSB-TV Channel 2.
FYI–The Southern States Llama Association and Southeast Llama Rescue will be bringing their camelid friends with them to march in the parade. In keeping with tradition, they’ll be heading to Augustine’s Neighborhood Pub in Grant Park with the llamas after the parade is over, so if you want to spend more time with the llamas, add lunch plans to Saturday’s to-do list.
