Brooklyn Centre Bicentennial: I Love A Parade!

without comments


Nothing gets my heart pumping faster than a parade and on Sunday August 12th there is going to be a great parade.

If you  would like to be part of the parade all you need to do is Join “Neighborhood on Wheels”. Joining is as easy as bringing your bicycle to Art House at 3119 Denison Avenue on Friday August 10th from 4 to  6 pm and decorate it.

All the materials and supplies things you need to make your bike sparkle, glitter, or just plain “cool” will be available free!

Then, all you need to do to be in the parade is to show up at Riverside Cemetery 3607 Pearl Road on Sunday between 11:30 am and noon to line up and be part of the celebration.

Step off time for the parade is Sunday August 12, at 1:30 pm.

The parade staging area will be in Riverside Cemetery.  The parade will go down Pearl Road turn right on Denison Avenue and proceed to W.C. Reed Park where the Community Picnic will begin at 3:30 pm. 

The picnic will have games and activities for the kids and lemonade and iced tea for the adults.

Be sure to let your friends and neighbors know about the parade so that the parade route will be full of spectators cheering the bands, antique cars, the marching units and they will see just how creative you and the kids can be.
