About the Event
DREAM's St Patrick's Day Sausage Walk dachshunds are "Long on Luck" this year. They and their friends get to parade down the middle of Peachtree Street all the way to Colony Square. It's gonna be a sham-rockin' good time!!! This is Atlanta's longest running event and we couldn't be happier to have been invited to participate.
So join us, bring your dachshunds and honorary dachshunds too...we LOVE all our supporters and want y'all in attendance with us.
When else will you get the chance to walk your wiener dog down the middle of Peachtree St?!? Like, never, right?
Make it a weekend pawty and stay at the Hampton Inn and Suites located on the parade route. We have a special room rate for the dates of March 10-12, 2023 of $169.00 for a regular room and $209.00 for a King suite plus taxes and fees. Dogs are allowed and there is a $75.00 fee. There is parking in the garage right next to the hotel. Follow this link to book your rooms>>>> https://www.hilton.com/.../atlmnhx-dac-6b932ee0-b11c.../
Besides our FABULOUS tshirts, ORDER HERE feel free to dress up your dogs, decorate your strollers, paint your faces, drape your boas, and wear your hats. The more spirited you are, the more fun we will have. And the most spirited will be awarded a special prize by DREAM at the end.
This is a family-friendly event. Bring your kids, your dogs, etc. Pets MUST be leashed, kids not so much.
THe info you need to know for walking in the parade can be found at the links below. Let's face it - ATL is a pro at putting on this shindig. The parade starts at the corner of Peachtree St. and 15th St. and travels down Peachtree St. ending at 5th St.
Parade info site: http://atlantastpats.com/
Groups are given staggered arrival times between 10:00 and 11:00 to cut down on congestion in the marshaling area. We will let you know that time as soon as we are told. Step off is promptly at noon.
9:30am – 9:45am (this info is subject to change and we will update you on the meeting place.) We are gathering as a group at a parking deck, so we can all walk together to the staging area check in. This is what has been asked of us by the parade route managers. So...YAY...we've figured out parking and a place to gather as a group, so we can walk to the parade check-in all together. (Parade logistics are hard, especially when dealing with dachshund time. You absolutely MUST be on time.)
There is a deck called Promenade Deck. It is in between 14th & 15th St just off of W. Peachtree St. https://goo.gl/maps/YuXgqiyZDn3tBNjPA
Start parking ~9:30am. DREAM will be waiting for you at the 15th St entrance to this deck. This is at the intersection of 15th St and Arts Center Way.
You are responsible for paying for your own parking.
If this deck gets full, there is another parking deck for the Woodruff Arts Center just off 15th St & Arts Center Way, and it's super easy to see one deck from the other. You won't miss us gathering at the corner of 15th St & Arts Center Way.
Some other parking suggestions we've been provided are the One Midtown Plaza off of Arts Center Way, the Colony Square parking deck on 14th, the Campanile parking deck on Juniper, the Proscenium parking deck on Crescent, and the Promenade II parking deck on 15th will be open. Rates will apply.
