Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson and her family had a successful meet and greet with their fans in Atlanta, Georgia, this weekend.

On Sunday, the 16-year-old reality star took to Instagram to share a video showing how the fan event went. The camera captured Alana and her 21-year-old boyfriend Dralin Carswell signing autographs for the attendees.

The meet and greet appeared to be a huge success, with the clip showing a long line of fans waiting for their turn to meet the reality stars. The line extended from the venue's parking lot to the adjacent street.

In her caption, Alana thanked Boston Market for hosting their Georgia fan event on Saturday.

"Thank you to [Boston Market] in Atlanta, Georgia, for hosting our Meet & Greet! We had a huge turnout and the Chicken Nuggs smelled amazing," she wrote.

Her sister and legal guardian, Lauryn "Pumpkin" Shannon, 22, shared a similar clip on her Instagram, and she also thanked Boston Market and the fans who "came out [and] showed us love today."

The sisters' posts got flooded with positive messages right away as many were happy about the turnout despite the absence of their mom, Mama June Shannon, 43.

"Looks like a real nice crowd! So happy for y'all," one wrote.

"Awesome turn out. Miss you guys on TV. Good luck on your tour," another added.

"So cool! Glad you had such a nice turnout," a different fan commented.

For their Atlanta stop, Honey Boo Boo and Pumpkin were joined by the latter's husband, 26-year-old Josh Efird, and their kids, Ella Grace, 4; Bentley Jameson, 1; and newborn twins Stella Renae and Sylus Rae.

Alana's other sister, Jessica "Chubbs" Shannon, 25, and Mama June's older sister, Joanne "Doe Doe" Shannon, were also in attendance.

Pumpkin announced her family's tour in July, saying they will be heading to different locations in the country this summer. She did not mention Mama June in her announcement.

Earlier this month, Mama June decided to hold her own meet and greet with her husband, 34-year-old tattoo artist Justin Stroud, and without her kids.

The reception to Mama June's fan event was mixed, with some attendees claiming that the controversial matriarch has been misunderstood by many. Others voiced their disappointment in her for abandoning her children.

The sixth season of the family's reality show, "Mama June: Road to Redemption," ended last month.
