If you're feeling naughty, the public is invited to meet him at 10:30 a.m. with raucous brass/hip-hop band John Boy + Surround Sound and his merry band of misfits in tow, and follow the Green Grand Marshall as he leads community participants with LED balloons from Krog Street all the way down the Beltline to Ponce City Market. Feeling kinder? March with Santa instead on team nice! The parade will culminate with a grand finale arrival at The Shed at Ponce City Market for the official holiday kickoff at noon.
