Grant Park Conservancy Lantern Parade

Did you feel that chill? Okay, so maybe not today, but you know it’s coming! And it’s time to start thinking about your Halloween-time activities. The GPC Lantern Parade better be at the top of your list! Mark your calendars for Friday, October 24. More info about the parade, lantern-making and lantern kits to come.


It’s a parade! With lanterns! And costumes and family and friends and neighbors! The third annual GPC Lantern Parade takes place in Grant Park and will be full of spooky surprises and amazing glowing lanterns. Purchase a lantern kit (on sale soon- we’ll keep you posted) or bring your own, and get ready to light up the park. 

Meet at the pavilions to follow the Black Sheep Marching Ensemble as they lead us on an easy walk through the park. Step off is at 7:30pm, but get there early to scope out all the cool lanterns and costumes. We can’t wait to see you there!

When Melissa Wakamo began her real estate career in 2004, her goal was to focus on her immediate area and get to know her neighbors. "I've had a lot of fun over the years helping my neighbors sell their homes and helping newcomers become a part of our community."

Melissa quickly became one of metro Atlanta's top producing agents and consistently performed in the top 1% of all Atlanta agents. By 2009, Melissa's real estate team had grown to include several agents and support staff, dedicated to providing exceptional service to buyers and sellers in Atlanta's intown neighborhoods.

In 2010, Melissa transitioned Red Robin REALTORS® into an independently owned boutique brokerage. Even in the tough real estate market during that time, Red Robin REALTORS® continued to outperform other small brokerages and was able to help buyers and sellers adapt to the rapid changes in the market.

In 2017, Melissa had the opportunity to merge the Red Robin REALTORS team with another like-minded boutique brokerage, Keller Knapp Realty. The two community-focused organizations bring together more than 100 agents, including 3 of the top 10 agents in metro Atlanta. With offices in Oakhurst, Ormewood Park and Midtown, Keller Knapp Realty and Red Robin REALTORS team are the top boutique real estate firm in Atlanta.

In her role as Managing Broker, Melissa provides agent training, marketing and strategic oversight for the Brokerage, ensuring that the brokerage maintains its focus and commitment to the intown market.

Melissa's active participation in various neighborhood organizations and charitable efforts, as well as her passion for antiques, cooking, and gardening, keep her busy and in touch with the community.
