Sparkle Sandy Springs Drive-Thru Holiday Parade


The City of Sandy Springs will continue its annual tradition of a holiday Sparkle Village on the City Green and has reimagined the 2020 Sparkle Parade as a drive-thru experience. Due to COVID safety guidelines, the annual Sparkle Parade has been reimagined as the Sparkle Drive-Thru Parade for 2020, and will be held on Sunday, December 6 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. 

This year, parade spectators will be the ones moving along the parade route, as parade floats will be set up ornamentally around the City Green, Galambos Way, and Mount Vernon Highway.  On December 6, beginning at 5:00PM, get in line for the Sparkle Drive-Thru Parade. The parade will start lining up at the corner of Mt. Vernon Highway and Hammond Drive (this is a drive-thru event, no pedestrian traffic allowed). See below for drive-thru route and road closure information. 

The interactive Sparkle Village that traditionally decorates the City Green, including Christmas tree and Menorah, will again be on display beginning Thanksgiving Day through the New Year. The village features artfully displayed six-foot-tall wooden houses decorated in holiday themes by civic groups and local businesses and adorned with twinkling lights, creating a magical, walkable light display that visitors can stroll through throughout the season, providing countless photo opportunities.
