Students and faculty at Georgia Piedmont Technical College were among the fans who have shown their pride for the Atlanta Falcons’ NFC Championship win and the 2017 Super Bowl LI. Every since Atlanta learned the Falcons were going to the Super Bowl in Houston, the city has been awash with red and black and happy fans cheering on the Dirty Birds to “Rise Up” in the big game against the New England Patriots.

Even Gov. Nathan Deal has gotten in on the act. Deal proclaimed Feb. 3 as Falcons Friday at the state capitol.

DeKalb County CEO Michael Thurmond declared Atlanta Falcons Day in DeKalb. To celebrate, Thurmond scheduled a pep rally for Feb. 3 for county employees featuring food, music and special appearances from former Atlanta Falcons and the original Atlanta Falcons Bird Lady at the Manuel Maloof Auditorium in Decatur.
