With the passing of Gregg Allman, fans want to know how they can say their final goodbye.

Saturday at Snow's Memorial Chapel in downtown Macon, there will be a private service in memory of Gregg Allman.

The service starts at 1 p.m.

Further details about the event have not been released.

Snow's Funeral Director, Reginald Smith, says that due to a confidentiality contract between the Allman family, the funeral home, and their lawyers, he can't discuss the funeral.

After the funeral service Saturday, Gregg Allman's body will be taken to Rose Hill Cemetery.

He'll be buried near his brother, Duane Allman, and Berry Oakley, another founding member of the Allman Brothers Band.

According to Lieutenant Randy Gonzalez at the Bibb County Sheriff’s Office, the procession will travel along First Street leading to Riverside Drive and go straight to Rose Hill Cemetery.

Along those streets is where dozens of Allman fans will stand by and pay their respects.

Road Closures

According to a news release from the Bibb Sheriff's Office, Cherry Street will be closed off in a few designated areas beginning at 8:00 a.m. Saturday morning.

Cherry Street - First Street west to New Street

First Street – Cherry Street north to Riverside Drive

Riverside Drive- First Street west to Orange Street

The roads will be closed when the procession begins, following the service at Snow's Memorial Chapel. The procession will travel from Snow's Memorial Chapel on Cherry Street east to First Street. The traffic will then turn left and travel north on First Street to Riverside Drive. A left turn will be made on Riverside Drive and the procession will travel west to the 1000 block of Riverside Drive, making a right into the entrance of Rose Hill Cemetery. The roads will reopen once the procession passes each intersection on its way to Rose Hill Cemetery.

Saturday night at the Big House museum on Vineville Avenue, the family is hosting a private gathering with entertainment from local musicians.

It is an invite-only event for family and friends.

According to Richard Brent, the Director of Collections and Merchandise, The Big House will be open from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday. The admission fee is $10.

Grant's Lounge owner Edward Grant says that Allman visited the lounge often.

“My fondest memories of Gregg was when he brought Cher. She sat at the end of the bar down there, and that particular night, Gregg got up and jammed. So that was a very special night here in Grant's, but there were many times that he came down and played. Even with a little band that I had in high school called Moon Dogs and he came and played with us one night,” said Grant.

Grant says they have a jam session planned Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night for all of the music legends that passed away including Gregg Allman. The event is free.

I've talked to several of the FamABBly who plan to attend.

IDEA: park in the deck near the Rookery - Douglass Theater and walk the few blocks north to 1st street. We could line the street in respectful fashion to show our respect for Gregg. There seem to be several lots on 1st street - but that area will likely be closed to traffic. There are a lot of businesses on Riverside (gas stations, fast food, etc.) - don't know how they'd feel about folks parking there.

I do not want to contribute to any spectacle type event. I just want to pay my respect to Gregg.

Thanks Rusty

Sounds good, what time do you think that ya'll

to go and pay our respects to Gregg.

Due to some serious personal circumstances I am unable to attend and I also live in Maryland. I am extremely upset that I can't attend the street procession so I hope the news films this or has live coverage at or prior to 1:00pm when people start lining the streets up to Rose Hill. If anyone can, please film/videotape and post the memorial procession for fans as well as any memorial happenings including the jam sessions all weekend at Grant's Lounge and anything at The Big House Museum.

If someone could please bring a flower and say a prayer for Gregg on my behalf, which I have done myself up here as well, I thank you with all my heart.

To quote Gregg from his own song, "God Rest His Soul". I hope he is reunited with Duane, Mama A and his Dad, as well as Berry, Butch, and Lamar. God Bless and Keep them all.

As Gregg Allman fans line funeral procession, where can you park?
BY LIZ FABIAN

ORDER REPRINT OF THIS STORY
Millions of Allman Brothers Band fans are mourning across the world, and thousands of people could be in Macon for Gregg Allman’s funeral Saturday.

The Bibb County Sheriff’s Office has been fielding calls about parking from those who are planning to line the route of the funeral procession.

Parking is restricted on Cherry Street near Snow’s Memorial Chapel where the procession will leave following the 1 p.m. memorial service.

The hearse, Allman’s family and close friends will travel down Cherry Street and turn left on First Street, and then turn left again on Riverside Drive to Rose Hill Cemetery.

The sheriff’s office suggests the public park in the 800 block of Riverside Drive at the old Macon City Central Services property that served as parking during this year’s Cherry Blossom Festival.

Another vacant car lot is available across from the cemetery at 1090 Riverside Drive near Orange Street.

The memorial service and burial are private, but the family has encouraged people to pay their respects in public displays of affection for the famed musician who adopted Macon as his hometown.

Likewise, I am heavily considering it myself, about 6 hours from here but the wife seems to be onboard. We shall see. Never been to Macon before...

Searching for it, but every time I go to the stations' website it goes to Comcast.
You could try going through WGXA 24. They're actually the same station, just Fox under 24 and ABC under 16.
