Wednesday - August 12, 2020

Coming up on its 19th year this local event is the highlight of Summer here in Brier, Washington.

Hatched as an idea to replace Brierfest, the Park Board, got creative and developed this festival centered around the business core of Brier.

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.

SeaScare in Brier

Note: Brier Road will close to traffic at 6:00 pm on the day of the event from 238th to 228th. Detour routes will be available.

A "Jolly Roger". Don't know what one is:

Jol-ly Rog-er
Function: noun
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.

The past three years we've had a great band - AND HOPEFULLY THEY'LL COME BACK FOR A FOURTH!

The Urban Renewal Project

The Urban Renewal Project is a Los Angeles based band that uses instruments of a bygone era to create a signature sound that blurs the boundaries between soul, jazz and hip-hop. The group features a big band horn section, a singer and a rapper who perform upbeat originals and fresh interpretations of everything from jazz standards to recent hits. They've toured nationally from New York's Rockwood Music Hall to the San Jose Jazz Summerfest, and their recordings have received airplay on tastemaking radio stations across the country, including KCRW-Santa Monica and WDCB-Chicago.

And, the band features Tad and Ann's (Brier Pizza) daughter as part of the group!
