JOHNS CREEK, Ga. -- It's hard to believe that Johns Creek will turn five years old on Thursday, Dec. 1.

So many things have happened in the past five years, and residents are now ready to celebrate.

The annual Founders Day Parade will kick off at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 3 on State Bridge Road between Kimball Bridge and West Morton roads. See the route here.

Special entries in this year's parade include Homer the Brave, mascot of the Atlanta Braves; World Financial Group's NASCAR race car; and the Atholl Highlanders Pipes and Drums of Stone Mountain. 11Alive anchor and Johns Creek resident Karyn Greer will once again serve as emcee of the event.

The parade will be followed by a Santa Jam at Johns Creek High School, featuring live music, refreshments, a moon walk and the chance to sign holiday cards for soldiers serving overseas. The school is located at 5575 State Bridge Road.
