We will meet at the North Springs MARTA station at 10:30 AM and travel downtown together. The parade doesn’t start until 12 noon but we must arrive early downtown to locate other Atlanta area PFLAG chapters (we are all marching together) and get lined up in our spot designated by the parade committee.
Be prepared to purchase your own MARTA tickets. MARTA fare is $2.50 for a one-way trip or $5.00 for the full round-trip. All MARTA fares must be purchased with a Breeze card or Breeze ticket available for purchase at the machines in the station.
For anyone who does not come with the group or wishes to come on their own, we will be in ROW F SPACE 9 at the PFLAG Atlanta truck on the bridge at West Peachtree Street when you exit from MARTA Civic Center Station. – Be sure to bring your own bottled water or other drink for the parade route to ensure you stay hydrated. – It’s advisable to wear sunscreen and a hat or even a long sleeve T-shirt for sun protection. In the event of rain, the parade usually goes on so if the weather turns be prepared with a hooded rain cover/poncho. – This is an opportunity to be yourself, dress crazy, show those rainbow colors, and have fun! – We will have a tent at the end of the parade route in Piedmont Park in Midtown where we’ll have sandwiches, snacks, and water. There will be vendors, music, and lots of activities in the park to check out if you choose.
