This annual parade, a Cartersville tradition since 1956, is all about just being a kid!  For the kids, it’s just fun to be in a parade dressed as your favorite character. For the parents, it’s an all out competition to see who can create the best themed costume to take home a year’s worth of bragging rights. In all, it’s just a great way to support families being together and making great memories.

The parade starting point and check-in is at West Main Street and Etowah Drive. The route continues east on Main Street, turning left onto Gilmer Street, then left onto Cherokee Street and ends in the Bartow County Courthouse parking lot at 135 West Cherokee Avenue.
