Muster: LISTEN–Go EARLY, eat and drink, traffic is historically a nightmare if you wait for muster time to show up.. that said.. muster anytime after 6pm Atlantic Station. Old Pier 1 store. (corner of Market St NW & Tower St NW)
Muster 2: likely 7:30pm Tower St NW just outside old Pier 1 store. This is parade line up.
Step off: likely 8pm, we parade around Atlantic Station and play a short standstill that ends on cue
Costume: Holiday festival! Lots of lights (for costume and music). There’s only one Santa and it’s not you!
Incorrigibles: Very welcome!
Parking: likely 12 PAD (241 20th Street Atlanta, GA. 30363). This is the parking lot with the tennis courts. Follow Fowler St until it 90 degrees into 20th St. Parking lot is on the left. Organizers have requested that we do not park in the paid parking decks. Plan for a lot of traffic, leave with plenty of time.
Marta: Sure! Go to Midtown station and take the shuttle from there. The bus/shuttle will be on the road, and people don’t tend to respect the bus lane so plan for a ton of traffic and leave early as well.
A personal favorite! Atlantic Station is lit up so pretty for Christmas! If this doesn’t bring on the (pre-Thanksgiving) Christmas Spirit then you’re a Scrooge. The parade has grown a ton over the years, plan for a 30-45 minute parade around Atlantic Station welcoming ‘the big guy’ followed by a standstill. The standstill location is the old Strip restaurant patio. Entry will be single file until we’re in place. Follow your broom! This gig has an unexpected ending usually.
Note: We must clear Pier 1 as we depart. It’s a muster location (warm spot with potties), not a green room. Please leave instrument cases, purses, and personal items locked safely in your vehicle.
