For fans of the Atlanta Beltline Lantern Parade, the Saporta Report offers a can't-miss column by Chantelle Rytter, Krewe of the Grateful Gluttons captain and founder of the annual nighttime spectacle. Rytter traces the event's humble, grassroots beginnings — from back "when the Eastside Trail was that dark creepy place behind the dumpsters" — to a uniquely Atlanta tradition attended by thousands. Sounds like the parade will happen the Saturday after Labor Day in perpetuity. [SR]
