The 24th Annual EAST COBBER Parade & Festival is scheduled for Saturday, September 14. The day’s festivities will be kicked off by the EAST COBBER Parade at 10am. The annual parade aims to build a sense of community and reinforce East Cobb County’s status as one of the best places to live in the metro Atlanta area. Floats, high school marching bands and a cornucopia of East Cobb groups will march down the one-mile parade route. Starting at 10am, the parade participants will step off in front of the Princeton Lakes subdivision entrance (1223 Johnson Ferry Road), travel south on Johnson Ferry Road, and then turn onto Olde Towne Parkway.
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. Booths will be set up to showcase everything from jewelry to local non-profits. East Cobb kids will have plenty to do at the EAST COBBER Festival from getting their face painted to taking a chance at a carnival game to hopping in a moonwalk. Festival goers will also be treated to food from East Cobb restaurants and food trucks.
