Fans enjoy Chick-fil-A Bowl parade

ATLANTA, GA (CBS46) -

A brisk wind and chilly temperatures couldn't stop the Chick-fil-A Bowl parade.

"It is just fun to be a part of it so every year I look forward to it," said Tim Whitmer, a performer with Medieval Times Dinner and Tournament.

It featured a little bit of everything including bands, dancers and of course,  some royalty.

"We come here every year. We bring out six of our horses, we have the king, his majesty, five of his best knights, some of his servers and the princess," said Whitmer.

"The horses are the star of the show. They are kind of what makes everything we do that much more magical," said Chris Warner.

And what parade would be complete without an old fire engine.

"This is a 1961 Ford F-700. It was purchased as a surplus vehicle from a fire department in Indianapolis with a top speed of 50 miles per hour," said Christian Vehrs, with New Hope Baptist Church.

Over at the Georgia World Congress Center, fans waiting for the matchup between the Duke Blue Devils and the Texas A&M Aggies took part in some pre-game fun at the Chick-fil-A Fan Fest.

"I always like seeing what else is going on. It was a lot of fun," said Vehrs.
