Earle Brown Days 2018 Offers Something for Everyone!

Your community celebration is just weeks away, join your family, friends and neighbors at this annual get-together.

Festivities kick-off with a parade, wave to police officers, fire fighters and local politicians as they make their way along the route. Laugh at the clown cars, clap along with the drum line and look high in the sky as the stilt walkers pass you by. 

If golf is your thing, be it classic or fling, be sure to sign up for the golf festival at Centerbrook Golf.

Friday night is for adults only (21+) at the Red, White & Brew beer and wine tasting event. Snack and sip the night away to dueling pianos. Tickets available for purchase at the community center, Centerbrook Golf and BC Liquors. 

Kids enjoy a special obstacle course 1K fun run just before the start of the annual Run, Jump or Fly 5k that weaves through the beautiful trails of Palmer Lake Park. Proceeds from this event benefit both Earle Brown Days and Special Olympics Minnesota.

The festivities conclude with a family festival at Centennial Park attendees can enjoy dinner from a local food truck, dance away to Belladiva, peruse the community market and take a selfie in a police car and more before cuddling up for fireworks at nightfall.
