Celebrate The Season At The Sparkle Sandy Springs Holiday Parade

December 8th, Festivities begin at 4:00pm and the Parade steps off at 5:30pm

The City will host its inaugural Sparkle Sandy Springs Holiday Parade on Sunday, December 8, 2019. There will be food trucks beginning at 4:00, a snow machine on the Green, the Sparkle Village (a great opportunity for family holiday photos), and a celebration of Hanukkah. The Parade will step off at 5:30 p.m. near the water tower, marching along Mount Vernon, concluding with a tree lighting at City Springs.

Sparkle attendees might catch a glimpse of an extra special guest as he checks his list one last time. Hot chocolate will help keep spectators warm before the parade. The night will end with the twinkling lights coming to life for the first time this holiday season. Sparkle Sandy Springs features a holiday village of artfully displayed six-foot-tall wooden houses painted in holiday themes and adorned with lights creating a magical, walkable light display that visitors can stroll through all season long.

“It’s a season to be joyful, and we look forward to coming together as a community to ignite the sparkle of the holidays.”
