Here’s how to avoid the Campbell homecoming parade traffic on Friday

It’s homecoming week at Campbell High School, and that means the annual parade will be snaking through Smyrna on Friday at rush hour.

The parade is expected to last an hour starting at 5 p.m., the city said. There will be no roads closed for the parade, but there will be temporary impacts as it heads through town.

• Calendars for the next two school years in Cobb up for vote

• These Cobb schools are some of the best in Georgia, study says 

The parade begins at the Smyrna First United Methodist Church, moving past the library, and takes Village Green Circle to Powder Springs Road to the Ward Street area near the school and then ends at the stadium.

Campbell is the county’s second-largest school with 2,825 students, according to the most recent statistics.

The city posted a map of the route on its Facebook page:
