Reindog Parade at the Atlanta Botanical Garden

Saturday, December 7, 2013

For the past few weeks residents of Atlanta may have noticed a jolly, overweight man dressed in red roaming around the city. With Christmas less than a week away you still have time to leave your naughty ways behind and find your way onto the nice list. Santa Claus made a stop at the Atlanta Botanical Garden where once a year the doors open to visitors with more than two legs. Each year the gardens holds their annual Reindog Parade, allowing dogs to don costumes and walk the grounds with their owners. The four legged friends also had the opportunity to have their picture taken with Jolly Old Saint Nick.
