Johns Creek Founders Day Parade


Due to rain and thunderstorms forecasted for the majority of Saturday morning and for the safety of our residents and parade participants, the city has canceled the Dec. 1 Founders Day Parade. Additionally, there will be no road closures along State Bridge Road on Saturday, Dec. 1 as previously planned.

The Johns Creek Founders Day Parade is a kick-off to the holiday season. Some of the parade highlights include musical groups, local neighborhoods, schools, community organizations, civic clubs, and businesses.

Date: Saturday, Dec. 1, 2018
Time: 10 a.m.
Location: State Bridge Road between Kimball Bridge and West Morton roads [View map]

The Parade began in 2007 and has since become an important community tradition. The parade has grown to 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 include: 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.

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