Immediately following the EAST COBBER Parade, at approximately 11am, the EAST COBBER Festival will be held in the south parking lot of Johnson Ferry Baptist Church (955 Johnson Ferry Road). The Festival offers East Cobb County residents an opportunity to come together and enjoy an afternoon of local entertainment, carnival games and good food.
