ATLANTA - Channel 2 anchors Fred Blankenship and Linda Stouffer celebrate the holiday season with an Atlanta tradition, “The Children’s Christmas Parade.”
Channel 2 partners with Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, one of the nation’s top ranked pediatric hospitals. Proceeds from this year’s parade will expand an important simulation lab for nurses at Children’s. The lab provides the place nurses can practice the skills necessary to deliver safe care to their patients.
This year’s parade will feature award-winning marching bands, floats, exciting dance performances, giant helium balloons, clowns and, of course, Santa. Marching bands from the following local schools will liven up the street: North Paulding High School, Georgia State University, Pope High School and Heritage High School bands.
Now in its 33rd year, the parade marches through a brand new home in Midtown Atlanta. The fun starts at Peachtree and 16th Street, continues for one mile and ends at Peachtree and 5th Street.
