My old favorite Atlanta celebrity, Baton Bob, mysteriously vanished from Midtown + surrounding areas a few years ago. Piedmont Park just wasn’t the same…
Much to my extreme excitement, he’s officially BACK as of this summer!
The “Ambassador of Mirth” has returned to Atlanta to spread joy and happiness to all! (His adoring street fans rejoice!)
Never heard of Baton Bob/moved to Atlanta during his hiatus?? Here’s the Q+DD on this legendary Atlanta fixture:
Baton Bob is known for his outrageous outfits, whistle blowing tweets, and baton twirling spins and throws. Each weekend, Bob marches the streets of Midtown dressed in one of his over the top majorette outfits to the surprise of the mid-day brunch crowd at the Flying Biscuit, Gilbert’s, Caribou Coffee, Joe’s on Juniper, and our recent loss to the Midtown community, Outwrite Bookstore. The self-proclaimed “Ambassador of Mirth,” Baton Bob gives his street audience a show they won’t soon forget. If you hear a tweet of a whistle, you know Baton Bob is right around the corner to entertain you. (Midtown Patch)
So where did he go? Midtown Patch got the exclusive scoop straight from the source!

I’ve been a huge fan/supporter of Baton Bob’s ever since I moved to Atlanta in 2006, and I am just so beyond thrilled that he’s returned to the Dirty Dirty. Welcome back, Bob!
See you around Midtown!
