There is still time to join the Frontier Day Parade The Alvin Rotary Club is preparing to celebrate a big event on Saturday, April 27. Frontier
Day, the annual fun festival, is scheduled for that date. The annual Frontier Day Parade promises to
Pet Feed & Supplies
Hay & Shavings
Tack Apparel Clothing & Gifts
Lawn & Garden
be the highlight event of the celebrations. The Rotary Club’s annual Frontier Day is a tribute to Alvin area citizens with a parade beginning at 9 a.m. The Alvin Rotary Club invites you to participate in the parade and would be honored if you accept the invitation. In order to defray the expenses for the parade, Rotary is asking for a $20 fee per entry (per auto). Please return the entry card as soon as possible to Germania
Farm Insurance, Andrea BurrMays, (Gordon at Adoue) along with your fee, no later than the Friday before Frontier Day so they can prepare a place for you in the parade. Last year, there were over 200 entries in the parade, and it appears there will be even more this year. An estimated 20,000 people watched last year’s parade, and this year’s crowd is expected to be even greater. Frontier Day is a tradition in Alvin, and it is good
family-style entertainment enjoyed by visitors from surrounding communities. Therefore, Rotarians ask you to please refrain from using water balloons or water guns in any fashion. The parade line up begins at 7:30 a.m., Saturday at the north side of the Alvin High School football stadium parking lot. There will be Rotarians to give you a numbered place card and direct you to your spot in the parade.
