East Cobber Parade

Posted by Chryse Johnson on September 6, 2013 at 8:30 AM Comments comments (0)

Pack 1776 will be marching the 18th Annual EAST COBBER Parade & Festival!  The parade will be held Saturday, September 21, 2013 at 10am, RAIN or SHINE. Pack 1776 has been assigned to Row A. Check in time for our group is 8:45 am. Arrive on time and proceed to the designated row; no need to check in. Parents should inform their den leaders by our Den meetings this Sunday if their scout plans to march so we can confirm we have enough slots reserved.


The EAST COBBER Parade will be staged at Mount Bethel Elementary School parking lot (1210 Johnson Ferry Road, Marietta, 30068). Beginning at 10 am, 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.


To help up produce a successful parade and for the safety and enjoyment of all parade participants, it is vital that you abide by the following guidelines:


 

  • Arrive at your group's scheduled time. We have staggered the check-in times to efficiently organize the large number of participants (2,000+) in a limited amount of space. At the very least, get your vehicles and floats in place by your assigned time so participants can walk safely in the staging area. 


  • 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.


  • Cobb County Police have restricted the time Johnson Ferry Road can be closed for the EAST COBBER Parade. So, the less cars in the Parade the less time we will be on Johnson Ferry Road. It is very important you do not add more cars or people to your parade entry at the last minute. AND it is very important to keep walking, moving forward on the parade route. In the interest of time and respect to the police’s request please do not stop and put on a demonstration or a show while on Johnson Ferry Road.
