Founders Day Parade kicks off Dec. 2



JOHNS CREEK, Ga. – The annual Johns Creek Founders Day Parade will step off sharply at 10 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 2, complete with floats, marching bands and perhaps a jolly old elf or two.

The Parade begins on State Bridge Road between Kimball Bridge and West Morton roads. The parade route travels west on State Bridge at West Morton and ends at Kimball Bridge Road at Ocee Elementary School.

Founders Day Parade is the city’s kick-off to the holiday season. Some of the parade highlights include:

  • Musical groups
  • Marching bands
  • Local neighborhood groups
  • Schools groups
  • Community organizations
  • Scout troops
  • Civic clubs
  • Businesses

The first parade marched in 2007 and has since become an important community tradition.

The parade will feature more than 80 units and thousands of participants, including Shriner clowns, local high school clubs and bands, and colorful floats from area businesses, organizations and neighborhoods.

Special entries from previous years included Seed & Feed Marching Abominable Band, Atholl Highlanders Pipes and Drums of Stone Mountain, knights and maidens from Medieval Times, the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile, and more.
