SeaScary enough? This will be the fourth year for this local event. Hatched as an idea to replace Brierfest, the Park Board, got creative and developed this festival centered around the business core of Brier.

Join us as the people and sea creatures of Brier get together for a casual evening of fun. Gather the kids on your block and enter the parade - the theme is scary sea creatures, octopi, pirates, boats, nautical or any sea related idea.

All kids, classic car owners and anyone with a great parade idea are encouraged to participate. And, there will be prizes.

In 2004, All the kids 12 and younger participating in the parade will receive a coupon for a free meal at the Old Country Buffet in Lynnwood. We thank them for their sponsorship.

AND in 2004 - Las Margaritas in Cedar Plaza will offered children in the parade 12 and younger a dinner for 99 cents - one child per family. Just tell them you were in the Brier SeaScare parade.

There will be a prize for the best "Jolly Roger". Don't know what one is:

Sample #1

Sample #2

Jol·ly Rog·er
Pronunciation: 'jä-lE-'rä-j&r
Function: noun
Date: circa 1785
: a black flag with a white skull and crossbones formerly used by pirates as their ensign

Be sure to design your own special flag (Jolly Roger) for your group in the parade! Here are a couple samples of different Jolly Rogers.

This year the parade will again feature a variety of entertaining participants, local classic cars, race cars and a couple bands including the KD and District Pipe Band. There will be our favorite usual entrants and anyone else interested in joining the fun. And, there will be other prizes.

After the parade there an outdoor movie "Earth vs. the Flying Saucers" a 1956 classic. The movie had been a hoot each year. So, bring your lawnchairs and plan to join us.

Get in the SeaScare Spirit! This year we want to add the "Porchlights" to the Brier Realty "Porchlight Parade".

Residents and businesses are encouraged to decorate their yards or houses with outdoor lights (Christmas lights, etc.) and decorations in keeping with the SeaScare theme. People are asked to have these decorations up by August 4th.

The decorations will be judged on creativity and looks before the SeaScare event and the winners announced and prizes given during the parade.
