Calling all nuts to enter the Nutter Butter Parade

Published 2:00 am Wednesday, October 28, 2015

Calling all nuts! It’s time for the Nutter Butter Parade and all the nuts and all their nutty buddies will be downtown Brundidge Saturday for a highlight event of the Peanut Butter Festival Parade.

The Nutter Butter Parade will be at 1 p.m. Saturday and right slap-dab in the middle of the Peanut Butter Festival. The parade takes a Main Street route and some of the nuts play the role of spectators while the others come marching along.

Miss Josie Moonshine, Miss Goober Cocktail and Miz Collard Greens will all be back along with Miz Squash City, Miss Athlete’s Foot and many more representatives of Pike and Greater Pike County.

The Nutter Butter Parade is a rather informal parade and it’s an anything goes parade. Professional floats would be a real surprise but they certainly would be welcomed if they showed up. But the Nutter Butter Parade is anything you want it to be and the nuttier the better. If you want to parade your milk cow or a herd of goats or your baby sister or your brand new Zebco fishing rod, all you’ve got to do is show up, line up on the highway on the other side of the Piggly Wiggly on North Main Street in Brundidge and parade on downtown.

You might think you don’t have enough time to get up an entry but you do. Just crawl out of bed with rollers in you hair and be Miss Early Mornin’ Riser or shoulder your rifle and parade as Mr. Big Shot. Being in the Nutter Butter Parade is as easy as making a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

If you want to play homage to our farmers or our foodstuff, then  give yourself a title, like

Miss Sweet Tater of Miss Possum Grapes. Men could be Ol’ John Deere or  Billy Goat. Kids can roll tires, kick cans or push baby dolls in their buggies.

You can drive mule, a cotton picker or pickup truck. Kids on scooters, men on motor scooters or queens on the hoods of the cars. Anything goes in the Peanut Butter Festival’s Nutter Butter Parade.

Everyone’s invited to be a part of the Nutter Butter Parade at 1 p.m. on Saturday.

Lineup will begin at noon on Veterans Blvd. above the Piggly Wiggly. Hopes are to pre-

register the entries (334-735-2351) but, if not, don’t let that stop you. Just come on, line up and act like the nut you are or the one you wish you were.
