congestion on Eva Kennedy Road, Scales Road, and Main Street beginning at 7
a.m. Buford Highway (from McGinnis Ferry Road to Suwanee Dam Road) and Suwanee Dam
Road will close around 8:45 a.m. and reopen about 10:30 am.
This year, the parade will start at Stonecypher Road in Old Town, proceed up Main Street, turn right on Suwanee Dam Road, and conclude at Chicago Avenue in the Town Center area.
