Look for the Spring/Summer edition of the Town Tidings for more details and the specifics. It’s the best family value around!

Decorate those wagons, bikes, and floats for the parade. Make sure to be in the Elmbrook Church north parking lot before 8:45 am to get lined up for the parade. It winds east on Davidson Road, then south on Linden Lane into Marx Park. Bring your chairs and candy bags to watch the parade!
