32nd Annual Brunswick Pecan Festival Parade Brunswick , MO Saturday, October 6, 2012
Pictured here is the MOSSAR Color Guard team, who participated at the 32nd Annual Brunswick Pecan Festival Parade on Saturday, October 6, 2012, in Brunswick, Missouri. The theme for this year was ''Brunwick Pecan Festival Goes SPOOKY''.
In 1980 Chet Blackington started an event which was known as Riverside Days which was held at Riverside Restaurant and Motel. He asked all merchants to bring products to market. After the first year of the Riverside Days, residents of Brunswick held a meeting at the Uptown Cafe. At this meeting and much discussion the participants realized that pecans were a natural native product in the Brunswick area, and, therefore the festival was renamed to "Brunswick Pecan Festival". In addition, it was decided to hold the event in downtown Brunswick. Over time the Festival has evolved from a one day event to a three day event.
