A few ‘nuts’ sought for the Peanut Butter Parade

Published 10:00 pm Wednesday, October 15, 2008

The Nutter Butter Parade is a highlight of the annual Peanut Butter Festival Parade in Brundidge on the last Saturday in October.

Already “nuts” are putting their names on the dotted line so they can parade down Main Street to the cheers of thousands of fun-seekers on Festival day.

“The Nutter Butter Parade is a chance to have some fun while bringing fun to others,” said Rue Botts, parade chair. “The Peanut Butter Festival is a harvest and heritage celebration so we also have a lot of agriculture-related entries in the parade. We don’t restrict the parade entries. It’s an ‘almost anything goes’ parade. We just want to have fun.”

Any entry is acceptable as long as it wouldn’t be offensive to bunch of Red Hat Ladies.

“The Nutter Butter Parade is a good place for children to wear their Halloween costumes and a good place for adults to dress as their alter egos,” Botts said.

Antique cars, tractors, motorcycles, bicycles, tricycles, wagons, horses, lawn mowers and any other thing that can be moved down the street can be entered.

“If you can ride in it or on it, push it, pull it, drag it or roll it, you can parade it,” Botts said.

Lineup for the Nutter Butter Parade is noon at the Fort Wendell Taylor National Guard Armory. Pedestrian paraders may “fall in” at Colonial Bank.

The Nutter Butter Parade steps off at 1 p.m. on Oct. 25 and follows a Main Street route through Brundidge.
