A marching meet-up East Cobber Parade and Festival Sat Sept 11 9:15 AM
Thursday, August 26, 2010 2:32 PM
This is the second year that we will be participating in this event. While we had a wonderful turnout last year, and a wonderful reception by the crowd, I hope to increase the size of our marching group. I have 11 "First Freedom First" Tee shirts to hand out first come first served. If you marched last year, I hope that you will be marching again this year, and please remember to bring your tee shirt again.
If I get a large response I will try and get more tee shirts.
We have been assigned to Parade entry #29 and festival spot Row B 4 & 5.
The EAST COBBER Parade will be staged at Mount Bethel Elementary School parking lot (1210 Johnson Ferry Road, Marietta, 30068). Beginning at 10 a.m., parade participants will march south on Johnson Ferry Road, and then, after about one mile, turn onto Olde Towne Parkway which leads to the Fountains of Olde Towne Shopping Center, 736 Johnson Ferry Road where the Festival will be held.
Cars NOT part of the parade will not be allowed to drive into the school?s parking lot. The Cobb County police block off the Princeton Lakes road leading to the school that morning. It is suggested that you park in a nearby shopping center parking lot and walk to the school?s parking lot/parade staging area.
- Anyone marching in the EAST COBBER Parade must be in the staging area by 9:30am. Johnson Ferry Road from Upper Roswell Road to Lower Roswell Road will be closed to all northbound and southbound traffic from approximately 9:30am until 11:15am, when the parade is over.
- The EAST COBBER Parade will take place on Saturday, September 11, RAIN or SHINE!
Pleaseet me know that you are participating so I can (if need be) try to get more tee shirts.
Thank you all for being members of Americans United!
