Johns Creek Founders Day Parade favorites returning for 2013

Posted:

The 7th Annual Johns Creek Founders Day Parade set Dec. 7 again features popular and entertaining entries, including:

• Medieval Times with their damsels and knights,

• the Atlanta Braves Heavy Hitters with Homer the Brave,

• the Seed and Feed Abominables (an eclectic and eccentric marching band),

• the Atholl Highlanders Pipes and Drums.

The theme this year is “Holidays on the Creek.” Other returnees include Buddy Beaver of the Army Corps of Engineers, the Monette roadsters, race cars, and the free-wheeling Shriners who join marching bands, Scouts and neighborhood floats to parade past nearly 10,000 people along the mile-long route on State Bridge.

Those interested in joining the fun need to fill out an application form to secure their organization’s spot in the parade before Nov. 13. Remember when you do your planning that there’s only one Santa and he rides in a firetruck at the end.

Applications (available online at JohnsCreekGA.gov) should be emailed to Elizabeth.warren@JohnsCreekGA.gov, faxed to 678-512-3244, or dropped off at City Hall at 12000 Findley Road, Johns Creek, Ga. 30097.
