Join us as the people and sea creatures of Brier get together for a casual evening of fun. Gather the kids on your block and enter the parade - the theme is scary sea creatures, octopi, pirates, boats, nautical or any sea related idea.
All kids, classic car owners and anyone with a great parade idea are encouraged to participate. And, there will be prizes.

A "Jolly Roger". Don't know what one is:
Date: circa 1785
: a black flag with a white skull and crossbones formerly used by pirates as their ensign
Be sure to design your own special flag (Jolly Roger) for your group in the parade! Here are a couple samples of different Jolly Rogers.
This year the parade will again feature a variety of entertaining participants, local classic cars, race cars and a couple bands including the KD and District Pipe Band. There will be our favorite usual entrants and anyone else interested in joining the fun. And, there will be a few prizes.
Brier Salmon Derby Sponsored by the Fish Market at QFC - Look for a staff member and get a FREE ticket to the drawing for the big fish. Must be present to win, drawing will be held right after the parade - down by Brier Pizza at the announcement booth.
