Picture Diaries: Stone Mountain Park Media Day

Yesterday, November 21 a couple of friends and I had a blast at Stone Mountain Park during their media day. As part of the media day we were able to check out some of the parks holiday attractions and shows including the Holly Jolly Cabaret.

Like all of the attractions the Holly Jolly Cabaret is very family oriented. There was even a part during the show where the kids in the audience pranced around the theater as Rudolph and friends. All and all the show was pretty cute and will definitely get you in the holiday spirit.

Following the show we took part in a little cookie decorating. And I've come to the realization that I kind of suck at it lol.

My Friend Deborah's Cookie

We were a little hungry after all that work cookie decorating so we headed over to Showtime Snacks to build our own funnel cake. I'm salivating right now just thinking about that funnel cake. It was THAT good. We got apples and caramel on ours with whipped cream and nuts on the side but you can put Oreo's on it, M&M's, etc.

All That Funnel Cake-y Deliciousness!

After filling our stomachs with funnel cake we of course had to check out something relaxing so we headed over to the railroad station for a 25-minute train ride around the mountain. While on the train you really get a great look at all of the fall foliage. There's all kinds of shades of red, yellow, green, and brown. It even had us talking about possibly planning a camping trip at Stone Mountain or in the North Georgia Mountains.

We only had a couple of hours to spend at the park so our last stop was the sky lift and the top of the mountain. The sky lift was fun although those of you with a fear of heights would probably beg to differ. The scenery on top of the mountain was great and we got a bunch of great pics while up there.

All those buildings in the distance are downtown Atlanta.

I love this pic!

I would definitely suggest Stone Mountain Park if you have any family coming into town this holiday season. I'm sure they'll love it. On top of the Holly Jolly Cabaret which I mentioned earlier there's also Polar Express 4D, a Sleigh Ride Show, the Snow Angel Snow Fall celebration, and much more. Also, be on the lookout for Snow Mountain Park next month. I'm personally looking forward to that!
