2020 Reverse Parade

In 2020, COVID-19 restrictions make it impossible for the Pioneer Picnic to have its traditional Grand Parade through town. In an effort to celebrate Pioneer Picnic, which is the oldest annual continuous celebration in Oregon, the Linn County Pioneer Association and Central Linn Lions Club are inviting you to take part in our “Reverse Parade” on Saturday, August 15, from 10:00AM to 2:00PM. This unique event is an opportunity for you to decorate your home or business as you would a float in the parade following the theme of “Pioneer Farming”. So the community and our judges can visit your display, please register your home or business with the form available below and mail it to PO Box 57, Brownsville OR 97327 or email it to lcpa1887@gmail.com. Registration forms can also be found at Brownsville Pharmacy. You can opt out of the judging OR having your business or home listed on the public map. Please register your business or home before August 3 rd at 5:00PM to be added to our tour map.
