Helpful Hints To Make Your Day With Us Enjoyable


Check the weather and dress appropriately. We have seen everything from torrential rain storms to blistering cloudless days. Sunscreen is always recommended.

Lawn chairs are much more comfortable than street curbs.

Make a note of the Hometown Events Committee tent in Purdy's Lot. Staff members will be able to assist in contacting emergency personnel if needed.

Travel through town will be impaired for the duration of the parade. Please arrive early, and follow directions given by Dekalb County Sheriff's Deputies and Event Staff.

Alcoholic beverages are NOT permitted along parade route and in events areas unless clearly designated.
