PINK SATURDAY



Pink Saturday, is graciously hosted by Beverly, at How Sweet the Sound. Be sure to visit Beverly's beautiful blog to see a complete list of all the participants in today's Pink Saturday.



The Magic of Christmas: Macy's Traditions.... I have not taken a ride on the pink pig.... I do hope I will make it there this year.....



A treasured holiday tradition for more than 50 years, the Pink Pig was voted "Best Holiday Tradition" by Atlanta Magazine.... Generations of Atlantans have ridden the Pink Pig into the holiday season wearing "I Rode the Pink Pig" stickers with pride!




Priscilla, the Pink Pig carries on the family tradition beneath a 170-foot, 1950s-themed Pink Pig Tent at the Lenox Square upper-level parking deck. ...




The train carries children and parents through a life-sized storybook. Macy's donates a portion of the proceeds to Children's Healthcare of Atlanta....







The ride goes up sometime in November every year...it marks the holiday shopping season...


It sits on top of Macy's, in a tent that has pink pig merchandise, pictures of pink pigs from the past, pink carpet, and a Christmas tree decorated with pigs....
Thanks so much for stopping by...... As always it has been my Pleasure...
