JOHNS CREEK, Ga. - Parade floats created by the Medlock Bridge subdivision, Autrey Mill Nature Preserve and Heritage Center and the second-grade Brownie troop from Findley Oaks Elementary School were named the winners in the 2014 Johns Creek Founders Day Parade.

A repeat winner from past years, Medlock Bridge won the "Best Subdivision" award with their jungle-themed float, featuring animals such as lions, monkeys and tigers.

Nearly 100 residents worked on their float and costumes for months, making it a true neighborhood effort.

Autrey Mill's float featured a classic Santa's sleigh, set within a nature scene of animals representative of an 1800s Georgian homestead. The nonprofit's float won the "Best Civic" award.

In a parade filled with Scout troops, the competition was fierce to win the "Best Scout" float. This year, the handmade float created by second-grade Brownies at Findley Oaks Elementary School topped all in its cuteness and theme of "Little Brownie Elfers."

For the last seven years, Johns Creek has had a Founders Day Parade on the first Saturday in December to commemorate its founding as a city on Dec. 1, 2006. Thousands participate and watch each year.
