Annual Fourth of July Dunwoody Parade

Avast Me Hearties! We shall arise with the Dawn and Hoist the Colors in the Annual Fourth of July Dunwoody Parade! There will be much Merrymaking... and Rum aboard "Me Ass Be Dragon" as we ride through Dunwoody bestowing trinkets and treasures upon the lads and lassies of the port of call. The parade will not step off till 9:00...but from past experience....the traffic dictates you arrive early... The ship will be resting at anchor at Mt Vernon Shopping Center. here is a Google link http://maps.google.com/maps/place?hl=en&client=firefox-a&hs=qfh&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&resnum=0&um=1&ie=UTF-8&q=mt+vernon+shopping+center+Dunwoody,+GA+30350&fb=1&a... The parade proceeds down Mt Vernon to Dunwoody village Parkway and we will end there. The ship will relocate to the Dunwoody Tavern (5488 Chamblee-Dunwoody Road) for a bit of refreshment, some food & Camaraderie! Mayhaps some debauchery? We will be Shuttling Cars to the finish...Dunwoody Tavern...thus carpool if you can, but please arrive early...or else we will shuttle you back after the parade!

AGAIN for those that have trouble remembering last year or who will be new this year. We cannot THROW anything at the crowd! We can HAND...that means place it in the hands of the Kids...and adults. NO WATER CANNONS! No Black powder discharges or discharges of any kind. This parade waits for no one....dress for the 2.5 mile hike in boots or shoes... We will have a cooler of ice water on the ship. Any questions? Drop Ferguss a line.

    We will not be joining you for this, but just in case anyone needs to know this is the Dunwoody Parade Rain Policy:

    SAFETY IS OUR PRIORITY!

    We will not cancel the night before.

    We will setup and be ready to go even though there might be some drizzle – or even some claps of thunder – by parade time it could be gone.

    Dunwoody Police will determine if a delay is required.

    Dunwoody Police will make the decision at 9:00 AM if it looks like an electrical storm and we cannot proceed safely.

    For the latest information, please like Dunwoody Homeowners Association on facebook.

    Have fun and take a lot of pictures!

    The parade organizers have said that they will make a decision about whether or not the parade will happen tomorrow by late today. They have said that they will not cancel at the last minute.

  • Suzy T.

    Maybe we should have a contingency plan? I am seeing predictions of 4" of rain tomorrow afternoon. Sweetie John and I would love to spend the Fourth with all of you even if the parade is cancelled or rescheduled. Maybe still a grog fest at Dunwoody Tavern?

    1 · July 3, 2013

  • Calico Ann R.

    I am guessing that as of now, they have not rescheduled and the parade will go on as planned?

    July 3, 2013

    • Georgia B.

      No news on that. The parade has a Facebook page, Dunwoody 4th of July Parade. I will keep a weathered eye out there.
