Georgia Day Parade
Since the earliest days of the colony’s founding, Georgians have commemorated the landing of James Edward Oglethorpe and first English settlers at Savannah on February 12, 1733. While the COVID-19 pandemic requires an alternative to the traditional parade, Georgia students will have the opportunity to celebrate Georgia Day through an exploration of the parade theme, “Georgia Leaders on the World Stage,” supporting the Cold War focus of the 2020-2021 Festival. Classroom activities, art contests, and videos featuring greetings from state and local leaders throughout Georgia history will encourage today’s students to honor the spirit of the original Trustees whose motto, Non Sibi, Sed Aliis (Not for Self, but for Others) inspired Georgia’s founding.
