It is confirmed The Pink Pig has offered Generations of Joy to Children in the South. I found a link to photos in the Atlanta Journal Constitution. If you want to look, click here.
According to the AJC, “The venerable holiday ride for children of all ages is back.”
The Pink Pig is at the Macy’s Lenox Square mall store in Atlanta. The original Pink Pig appeared at Rich’s in 1953. The attraction was a series of of small cars wearing pig faces. As my mom’s story indicated, “riding became a holiday rite of passage for children and adults alike” the AJC writes. It all came down to who got an “I Rode the Pink Pig at Rich’s” sticker.
