Music: The Parade will be full of great Music. And don’t miss the free concert at Brandon Town Hall (1 Conant Square) starting at 3 pm.
Food: What kind of Independence Day Celebration would be complete without the grill, sweets, and some surprises? Hot dogs, hamburgers, BBQ chicken, Mexican, Sausage, and Steak & Cheese sandwiches, Wraps, Bread Dough, Fruit & Fruit drinks, Pie & Ice Cream, Cotton Candy, Shaved Ice and Maple products. Lots of vendors selling hand crafted items. Vendors will also be in the Park.
Family Activities and Games: The kids will love the Bounce House, petting zoo, pie-eating contest, ol’ fashioned games like sack races, relays and much more. Special thanks to the Brandon Inn.
Silent Auction: Let’s face it, Celebrations cost money. Supporting the Silent Auction is the best way to “pay it forward”. Scores of donations are awaiting your bid!
The Great Ball Race: The Great Ball Race is part of the tradition. Purchase a “ball” for only $5; once you buy it, you own that ball’s number and it ensures it will be part of the Race. The Race takes place in Central Park at 3:00 pm. Six cash prizes!
Fireworks: Come on over to Park Village (the old Brandon Training School) at 6:00 pm for food, fun, float winner announcements, and then count-down to the Fireworks. Brandon puts on a great show that you won’t want to miss. Donations appreciated.
