The Little Five Points Halloween Parade

  • October 19, 2013 · 2:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Ahoy, Mateys! The streets of Little Five Points will be brimming with chaotic energy and while we will NOT be sailing our fine ship "Me Ass Be Dragon" down the city streets as she be too large fer this venue, we will be "redistributing" our wealth among the general public gathered there.

Meet Lady Wispa for a few drinks at the Wrecking Bar Brewpub with the North Atlanta Geek Group before setting sail to the gathering place. If ye can't share a tasty beverage with the group, meet the rest of the crew at 3pm on upper Austin between Euclid and Moreland. The Parade steps off 4pm sharp !!! Any problems finding us call me Wispa[masked] 3820. Look for the Guild flag.

 There will be many interesting sights and sounds as we march the streets of this strange but alluring hamlet!

 With the congestion anticipated you should allow for a long walk from limited parking areas. There is parking for a fee at the Wrecking Bar Brewpub and there are several large pay lots available across from the Euclid Yacht Club, but they fill up early due to the all day events. The parade organizers have asked participants to gather at 2:00 PM - this gives the crew plenty of time fer photos and mixing with the locals. Bring yer own booty to give out...last parade of the year and the only place we can still "toss" to the munchkins.

    Question to all. Anything that the Dekalb popo frown on? Peace tied weapons, liquor on your belt. And the such? Not having done this outside of dragoncon or a specific festival setting... Yar , I don't want to end up in the brig!

      Peace tied weapons is a good idea at all public events and keeps the landlubbers from getting their hands on sharp pointy things. If memory serves me, they vend beer and such on the street so liquor on your belt should not be an issue.

    Agave, M.A.G. just posted its 2nd Little 5 Parade Meetup at Wrecking Bar. It's very convenient to the parade staging area, great beer, and nice parking. Please look at the posting and let me know if you'd like to do a cross-over with a bunch of geeks.

    Yours truly did the structural engineering to make Wrecking Bar a fine Rum House! Place was a fine mess before and a real beauty after rennovation!

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
