Usually we freeze at the Johns Creek Founders’ Day Parade. I believe it was last year they canceled it entirely. Our city is only nine years old and the mayor, who was also on the committee to make us a city, said they weren’t thinking about a parade when they signed the incorporation papers in December. But while today was chilly, it wasn’t too bad at all. One advantage to a cold-weather parade is they throw a lot of chocolate. The candy canes hit the street and shatter.
A Girl Scout troop was the first real entry in the parade and they were also a prize winner. I noticed this year there seemed to be more Girl Scouts than Boy Scouts.
About three or four entries into the parade I realized there must have been a theme. Something about good character.
As they drove by they lost one of their buildings.
