Grab your candy bag and get ready to line Main Street during the 72nd Annual K-Day Parade Saturday afternoon.
"We're still taking parade entries," Parade Co-Chairman and Clay County Veterans' Officer Les Walden told The Brazil Times. "We will continue to take them until the parade starts. We always have 20 or so entries show up the day of the parade. If they show up, they will be placed at the tail end of parade."
With the next few days being busy ones, Walden said those interested in participating in the parade or wanting more information can call him at home, 448-8352.
To ensure everyone's safety, law enforcement are encouraging all residents to remove vehicles from National Avenue for the parade.
"People don't always stay off the roadway during a parade," Brazil City Police Chief Dave Archer said. "There's always a lot of people there, both watching and participating, and everyone needs to be able to see what is happening for safety."
Archer said that all vehicles will need to be removed from National Avenue between the United States 40 and State Road 340 split to Vandalia Street before 1 p.m. Saturday.
"Officers will start redirecting traffic at the intersections at that time in preparation for the Kiwanis Day Parade, which begins at 2 p.m.," he said.
"It will remain closed until the parade is over."
Note: The K-Day Pancake and Sausage Breakfast ($6 for adults and $4 for children 12 and under) will be served 6 a.m.-noon.
