  • Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Christmas Parade

    As a volunteer working with the Atlanta Christmas Parade, I believe Argonne represents excellence. Their commitment, dedication, and focus helped me as parade chairman in ways I never imagined. They are a fine and professional group that works hard and is prepared for anything that may arise.

  • Argonne Parades Volunteer

    I absolutely love and enjoy volunteering with Argonne Parades. The volunteer experience is truly motivating and gives a sense of satisfaction and success by being able to take part in the organization and execution of the parade events. For the past 7 years, I’ve had the pleasure of working with dedicated and hardworking leaders who make the experience even more rewarding. I’ve observed that time and attention to detail is a primary focus for the team and they are always committed to the volunteers and parade participants that show up for each event. I am so honored to be a part of this team and looking forward to serving with them for many, many years to come.

  • St. Patrick’s Day Parade

    I knew nothing about parades when I was asked to take over the Atlanta St Patrick’s Day Parade 4 years ago.  After turning the parade from one having more people marching in it than viewing it, the St Patrick’s Day Parade now draws 200,000 spectators.  And I still know nothing about parades!  That’s because I hired Argonne Parades to make it happen.  Hobie and his team of professionals execute everything from permits to clean-up.  And they do it flawlessly. They’re absolutely unflappable.

  • Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta

    Hobie, Barkley and Argonne Parades have been working with Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta for a number of years. Their expertise in organizing and producing parades creates a seamless and easy process every year as we plan the annual Children’s Christmas Parade. They fully understand our expectations for the parade and work with Children’s throughout every aspect of the production. I do not know what we would do without Argonne!
