Dunwoody’s annual holiday parade could be expanding this year.

The Dunwoody Homeowners Association on July 10 discussed closing a portion of Chamblee Dunwoody Road in front of the Cheeks-Spruill Farmhouse to create more space for this year’s “Light Up Dunwoody.”

Bill Grossman, president of the Dunwoody Homeowners Association, asked the group to consider the idea of including a piece of the roadway in the event’s footprint.

“We could put tents out there, something out there, to spread the crowd,” he said.

Several people agreed that it would be a good idea and would also make the event safer.

“We’ve got so many little kids running around that we got concerned about the traffic coming so close,” Grossman said.

He suggested discussing the road closure with area businesses, like Dunkin Donuts and CVS, before making a final decision.

“The trade off for both of those businesses is they get a lot of business from the crowd,” Grossman said.
