Atlanta Beltline Lantern Parade
Every year the Art on the Atlanta BeltLine celebrates their exhibition with a captivating and energetic Atlanta Beltline Lantern Parade. The event is created and hosted by Chantelle Rytter and the Krewe, of the Grateful Gluttons. The glowing parade of light, music, and color illuminates the Eastside Trail and occurs on the first Saturday after Labor Day each year. This year, the parade will be held on September 9th from 7pm to 11:30pm.

Volunteers are needed to be Lantern Parade Marshals! As a thank you, volunteers will receive a cool Lantern Parade Marshal shirt designed by Chantelle Rytter.
