The Pink Pig Monorail

Nov 26, 1994—Peering from the belly of Percival Pig, L. Woodall, 4, gets ready for a ride atop the Downtown Rich’s. Rich’s department store’s Christmas event, the Pink Pig, a child-scaled monorail train-ride, came to downtown Atlanta, Georgia stores in the 1950s and was moved to the “Festival of Trees” at the Georgia World Congress Center in the 1990s after the store closed in 1991. Today, children can visit Macy’s at Lenox Mall.
