Theme: Locust Grove through the Years

This year, Founder’s Day will have lots of vendors that you have come to enjoy over the years, plus the parade. We are adding other fun things, too, including our first cardboard car show for all ages, a street dance, and DJ Dongo providing musical entertainment all day. Marcia Payne will have everyone’s favorite DJ’s Diner burgers, and there will be plenty of carnival-type games for the kids to play.

We need YOU to make the day a success. Consider participating in one or more of these ways before or on the day:

  • Enter the parade. You can have a float, decorated vehicle, horse, etc. We need participants to make a successful parade. The theme is Locust Grove through the years. Pick a year from history and show us your stuff.
