The annual East Cobber Parade and Festival takes place on Saturday, September 16, 2017. The event begins with a parade that starts in the Mt. Bethel Elementary School parking lot and travels one mile south on Johnson Ferry Road to end at Olde Towne Parkway. The parade includes over two thousand participants and more than eighty groups in floats, marching bands, classic cars, and more. The East Cobb Parade is sometimes referred to as the candy parade as nearly all floats toss candy to the crowd.
