The 2012 Brownwood Reunion Celebration is only about a month away and organizers are getting all of the competitions, attractions, and events prepared for the big weekend of September 14-16.
One popular competition during Reunion is the Feels Like Home Grand Parade which will incorporate the event’s 1980’s theme of “Let the good times roll.” Cash prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place entries for best theme.
The parade will take place Saturday, September 15th at 10am with line-up starting at 8:45am in the Bank of America parking lot in Downtown Brownwood. The fee to enter the parade is $10.00 per entry and includes 1 free bag of beads. Additional beads will be available for purchase for $5.00 per bag during line-up. Beads may be handed out curbside along route. Entry forms for the parade are due by Thursday, August 30th. The late entry fee of $20 will be charged after that date.
