Brigade Days 2015 — the best ever

The band Prism was among the evening entertainment for Brigade Days 2015. The budget for music doubled this year and the turnout was huge.

The 47th annual Brigade Days was a huge hit over the past weekend. The event demonstrated a solid effort by organizers, contributors and attendees who came out in the thousands.

This year saw over 4,200 guests according to President of the Brigade Days Committee Dusty Smith.

Through a few lumps and bumps, Brigade Days put on a show for entertained crowds, starting with the Bed Races and a hit parade on Wallace Street. It was followed by a host of sporting events, games, demonstrations and of course Food Truck Alley (which even offered an espresso bar this year.)

A stream of appreciation and thank you letters for the Brigade Days Committee and all contributors have been brought to the attention of The Hope Standard this week. According to reviews and an exceptional turnout at this year’s event, they are much deserved.

The letters and verbal accolades are an important acknowledgment of the time, hard work and dedication that went into making the 47th annual Brigade Days one of the best ever!

“I’m already looking forward to next year,” Smith stated at Monday’s council meeting.
