MORE: The Macy’s Pink Pig has been a beloved Atlanta tradition for more than 50 years. From its debut in the ‘50s as a children’s ride at the downtown rich’s store, to its brief stint at the Egleston Children’s Hospital festival of trees, five generations of Atlantans have ridden the Macy’s pink pig into the holiday season.

Priscilla – The Original Pink Pig – began as a monorail along the ceiling of rich’s, giving children the experience of “flying over” the toy department. Later, another pig – Percival – was added and they became known as the pink pig monorail twins. Years later, the monorail was relocated to the roof of the department store and the monorail twins took passengers on rooftop rides viewing downtown atlanta and circling the great tree.

In 2003, Priscilla the pink pig was re-introduced to a new generation of Atlantans. Since then, she has been back on track beneath a 170-foot, 1950’s-themed pink pig tent at the Lenox Square Mall upper-level parking deck near Macy’s. Atlanta’s most “pink-tacular” train ride travels along train tracks to carry children and parents through a life-sized storybook that includes the original pink pig and other holiday friends. Once again, a portion of the proceeds from each ride will benefit the children’s healthcare of Atlanta. To date, macy’s has donated more than $470,000 to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.
