MARTA HOLIDAY BUS A FAVORITE AT THE CHILDREN’S CHRISTMAS PARADE
The Metropolitan Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) was proud to participate in the recent Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Christmas Parade for the sixth year in a row, marking the official beginning of the holiday season in Atlanta.
The parade is the largest of its type in the southeast and featured floats, marching bands, and the MARTA holiday bus filled with children of employees, all coming down Peachtree Street in the heart of midtown Atlanta. MARTA General Manager & CEO Jeffrey Parker joined MARTA staff from across the Authority to hand out candy and wish those along the parade route a happy holidays.
The cold rain that fell on the parade didn’t dampen spirits, with many children waving and yelling “MARTA!” as the bus rolled by. This year’s theme for the bus was holiday heroes and featured brightly colored superhero characters wearing their holiday finest.
The parade will air Christmas morning on WSB-TV.
