ROSWELL, Ga. Saturday, Oct. 12 was an exciting day for the children of Roswell. Hundreds of families lined Canton Street to watch the 63rd annual Frances McGahee Youth Day Parade. The theme this year was "Hats off to Roswell," and the floats blew everyone away with their creativity and candy throwing. Children brought bags to fill with their pre-Halloween treats. The event began at 10 a.m. on Magnolia Street and ended an hour later at Roswell Area Park. Schools, performing arts schools, charity organizations, humane societies and political campaigners each made big, colorful floats to wow the attendees. The Youth Day Parade is a must-see event where music, dancing, candy and smiles are abundant and everyone is having fun.
