Join Christopher Robbins and crew, superheroes, Pete the Cat, and other storybook favorites for a parade through downtown Brodhead. Children will dress as their favorite storybook character and parade down the street honoring “Read Around Brodhead,” promoting the importance of reading to the youth of our community. Parents and community members are asked to join us by coming to downtown Brodhead and fashion an audience for our young readers to display their favorite storybook characters. Weather permitting the parade will begin at 1:00pm on Tuesday, October 31st parading from BES down Main Street via Silver to West Street then onto Main Street until they reach Citizens bank, where they will take a right on Short Street and return to BES via Silver Street. The students will be lined up by classrooms and escorted by the Brodhead Volunteer Fire Department. We would appreciate it if our parents and community could support our parade by lining the sidewalks of the parade route and cheering for our students as they travel along the path. Along the route students will pass in front of the Dollar General, Dari Delight, Citizens Bank, and Brodhead Baptist Church. If there were to be inclement weather, students will parade through the school into the gym where guest will be welcome.
