Aggie Fans Site-See in Atlanta Before Chick-fil-A Bowl


ATLANTA Kids surround him. The street performer and his bongos are all these kids are focused on. Each kid is playing a drum with no rhythm or beat.

The sounds of a Saturday afternoon in Atlanta.

Despite the weather, people flocked to Centennial Park in Atlanta. Including those visiting from Texas.

Holiday plans changed a little for Melody Meyer and Tracy Crenshaw. Their husbands work with the Texas A&M football team. While they work, Melody, Tracy and their sons are site-seeing.

"We're planning on doing Atlanta Rocks. It's a rock climbing place. The going to the Varsity for hot dogs," said Meyer.

Even though the game is a few days out, Atlanta knows the Aggies are here. Meyer said the reception by people in and around town has been great.

"Everybody's been really friendly, very encouraging going 'Go SEC' 'Go Aggies' They're gong to root for us," said Meyer.

As for their game prediction?

"Oh yeah, we're going to win," laughed Meyer.

Not even the rain in Olympic Centennial Park in Downtown Atlanta stopped people from getting out and visiting places like the Coke Museum and the Atlanta Aquarium.

Chick-fil-A is planning on having a fan zone outside the Georgia Dome where those going to the game can have a little fun.
