Kick Off the Holiday Season with Macy's Pink Pig

Riding Macy's Pink Pig is a long-standing holiday tradition in Atlanta.

For many in Atlanta, it doesn’t quite feel like the holidays until they have seen the Pink Pig ride at Macy’s in Lenox Square. The Macy’s Pink Pig train has been a holiday tradition in Atlanta for almost 60 years, making its debut as a children’s ride along the ceiling of Rich’s department store in 1953.

Priscilla the Pig runs on tracks through a life-sized storybook beneath 170-foot, pink, 1950s-themed tent.

Rides on the Pink Pig begin Saturday and run until Jan. 1 at a cost of $3 per ride.

Tickets are available at the Macy's Pink Pig kiosk inside the East mall entrance at Lenox Square. A portion of the ride's proceeds will benefit Children's Healthcare of Atlanta.

The ride is open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Saturdays and 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Sundays.

Get more information about the ride schedule at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.

The website isn't correct. It says they are open through New Year's Day but I went home with disappointed kids yesterday because they shut down on 12/30.

Call the Macys Perimeter store and complain to Julia Weaver for she is in charge of the Pink Pig and will need to clear this mishap up for next year. You were not the only person misled.
