Atlanta BeltLine 2021 Lantern Parade postponed due to rising COVID-19 cases





The Atlanta BeltLine Lantern Parade, which usually takes place in late September, has been postponed, organizers announced today.

“ABI was in the process of putting our plans in action for the 2021 Atlanta BeltLine Lantern Parade. However, as conditions surrounding COVID and the Delta Variant have shifted, it has become obvious that rates of infection and hospitalizations are on the rise. In conjunction with the Mayor’s office, we have decided to postpone this year’s lantern parade. While we are disappointed in having to reschedule, we want to ensure our communities stay safe. We look forward to Chantelle and her Krewe bringing back the parade when it is safe to do so.”

The annual event , which was started by artist Chantelle Rytter, celebrates Art on the BeltLine, a former railway circling Atlanta that now serves as a multi-use trail for hiking, biking, and other activities.

The parade has grown from 1,000 attendees in 2010 to more than 70,000 over the years.
