All Scouts Invited to Carry the Flag in the Marietta 4th of July Parade

Join the Cub Scouts & Boy Scouts in carrying the biggest flag in Cobb County. No registration. Just show up in full Class A uniform (required).

Boy Scouts and adults usually carry the edges of the flag while the Cub Scouts keep the interior from touching the ground .

STARTING LOCATION: Meet at the parade staging area at the northwestern parking lot of the Roswell Street Baptist Church (774 Roswell St, Marietta) at 9:30 am or earlier. This is located at the corner of Roswell St. and Victory Dr. Although the parade starts at 10 am, the flag is in the middle of the parade and we usually don’t start walking until 10:20 to 10:30 am.

DETAILS: Wear sunscreen and bring plenty of water. In that there is usually a wait of an hour, you might bring something for the Scouts to do to pass the time. There are Port-a-Johns in the starting area. The route is approx. 1.3 miles traveling along Roswell Rd past the Marietta National Cemetery. It takes a right onto Waddell St. in the square and ends at the corner of Waddell and Lemon St. City buses will be present to shuttle back to the church.

There is a full day of celebration planned by the City of Marietta. For all the details, check their web page
