The day will kick off with the parade at 9:00 a.m. This is followed by activities such as: *Ice Cream; *the unlimited games for all ages; *the Pie Eating Contest; *and the most delicious brats, hot dogs and hamburgers money can buy.  All of this food will be sold for OUTRAGEOUSLY LOW PRICES.

Look for the Spring/Summer edition of the Town Tidings for more details and the specifics. It’s the best family value around!

Decorate those wagons, bikes, and floats for the parade. Make sure to be in the Elmbrook Church north parking lot before 8:45 am to get lined up for the parade. It winds east on Davidson Road, then south on Linden Lane into Marx Park. Bring your chairs and candy bags to watch the parade!
