An Atlanta, Georgia, mall saw massive crowds gather on Saturday, with people lining up to buy the recently released Air Jordan sneakers after Republican Gov. Brian Kemp lifted lockdown restrictions over the weekend.

Shoppers formed lines that wrapped around the Greenbriar Mall on Saturday, to own a pair of the newly released Air Jordan 5 “Fire-Red” sneakers, WXIA reported.

A video posted to social media showed people waiting on a line to get into the mall and then on another line outside the shoe store Jimmy Jazz.

Elsewhere in Atlanta, people emerged to enjoy the parks or witness the Blue Angels and Thunderbirds flyover on Saturday afternoon.
