Customer appreciation day at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta Int’l Airport

Here’s unusual and welcome news from an airport:

Today, Friday, Oct. 17, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL) is having an appreciation celebration for passengers.

No joke!

South Atlanta High School’s 20-member Drum Line kicks-off today’s event, which will include a costumed Buckingham Palace Guard, face painters, musical performances, an African storyteller and traditional dance from Atlanta Asian Culture and Arts Center performers.

The party kicks off in the Main Terminal/Atrium at 12:30 with the high school Drum Line. Part of the promised entertainment is a “game show host on a Segway.”

The costumed palace guards start the afternoon on Concourse E at 1:30 p.m and will be followed by Spanish Guitarist, Cucho Garcia, African story-teller Cynthia Watts and a traditional dance from Atlanta Asian Culture and Arts Center performers.

Maybe every airport should make Friday customer appreciation day!
