Last Fair (2019), our B.A.M. Lions Club, along with all the parade participants created another exciting and memorable parade.

The Brooklin Spring Fair has many traditions and the parade is definitely one of the highlights. Many volunteer hours go into the planning and preparation of  the parade to ensure that it continues to grow and reflect the many long standing traditions established over the years.

Keeping this in mind, we would like to invite you or your group to be a part of this year’s parade.  You may consider entering a decorated float from a group to walk the route, dress up or provide your idea to us– we simply ask that you participate!  The theme  “Together Again” is sure to be a hit with all ages.
