We all love a parade with the marching bands and old fire trucks, prancing horses and the screaming sirens. If you go to the parade (October 16) follow the crowd and continue the 100-year celebration over at the grounds of the Justice Lipinski Center, 7256 Skyline Drive, where the party will be set up like a family picnic. Come on and enjoy the afternoon.

Hot bratwurst on a bun or pork roast will be sold with hot German potato salad, sauerkraut and other delights for only $5.00 a person. Additional food offerings will be available for children. The popular band, The Next Step, will set the scene with lively German, polka and band music. There is no charge to enter. Beer will be available.
