Our Arts and Crafts Festival started in 1974 as a one time event, in fact a one day event, to benefit the construction of T. W. Briscoe Park. The date was May 11, 1974. Snellville had until December of 1974 to raise matching funds for a grant for the construction. The Grand Marshal for our first parade was former Mayor Thomas Watson Briscoe, who served on the City Council and as the Mayor in the 1960s and 1970s. He worked tirelessly on the development of our park which is located on Lenora Church Road. The honorary Grand Marshal was WRNG radio (and later WSB) talk show host, Ludlow Porch The festivities started with a concert at the boat dock from 8 to 11:30 p.m. on Friday, May 10. The parade started May 11 at 11 a.m. at the First Baptist Church and ended at Briscoe Park at noon. The Jaycees sponsored barbecue chicken dinners at the park and there was an all day flea market, hot air balloon display, and a pigeon release. The park was dedicated at 3:30 p.m.
