Why should that patriotic spirit only last one day? In my opinion, it should last all year, but why not ride on the coattails of July 4th and keep celebrating on July 5th?

The City of Dunwoody’s Annual July 4th Parade is said to be the largest 4th of July parade in the state! Hosted by the Dunwoody Homeowners Association and the Dunwoody Crier Newspaper – this year it will take place on Monday July 5, 2010 (presumably because July 4th takes place on a Sunday). The parade features everything a good hometown parade should have: marching bands, floats, animals, community groups and local celebrities. Last year’s parade attracted over 2,500 participants and 32,000 spectators! How’s that for a community celebration!

Want to come out and see the parade? The parade route is 2.7 miles long, starting from the intersection of Mount Vernon and Jett Ferry at 9:30 AM and ending at the Dunwoody Village Shopping Center.

Please note: road closures will take place on Mount Vernon Road between Jett Ferry and Dunwoody Village Parkway from 9:15 AM until about 11:00 AM.

After the parade, the fun continues with a family festival in the parking lot of Dunwoody Village. All parade participants and spectators are invited for live entertainment, kids’ activities, BBQ, hotdogs, and much more. It’s truly a day of community, patriotism, and family-friendly fun!

Just remember: this Fourth of July Parade takes place on July 5, 2010!
