2019 Founders Day Parade set for Dec. 7 with new parade location and route

October 21, 2019

The City of Johns Creek is excited to announce the new parade location and route for the 2019 Founders Day Parade.   The date is set for Saturday, Dec. 7 and the parade will now be held near the new Johns Creek City Hall with the route leading down Lakefield Drive and Johns Creek Parkway. 

“We are excited about the new location of the Founders Day Parade,” said Mayor Mike Bodker. “This route follows the tree-lined streets of Technology Park, past City Hall, and gives greater opportunities for more spectators to watch the parade, without blocking any major roadways.”
The annual Founders Day Parade, beginning at 10 a.m., is a celebration for the whole family and marks the start of the North Fulton holiday season. The 1.3 mile-long parade has grown in popularity with thousands of spectators lining the roadway to enjoy this holiday tradition. Ample parking will be available in the area of Technology Park. 
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.
Competition is spirited as groups and organizations vie for Best Neighborhood, Best Business/Civic Group, and Best School/Scout float.
