Together, we ALL make Wells Branch GREAT!

Roll out the Red, White & Blue! If you haven’t decorated yet, you better get busy! Let’s show our Wells Branch Spirit. Hang your flags out NOW. Let everybody know that you’re ready to celebrate! Meet in front of the community center at 9:30am. The parade takes off at 10am. If you’ve never been to one of our parades before, then you should probably know we have decorated bikes, wagons, trailers, DOGS, KIDS, hats, motorcycles and floats. It’s a grand event!

If you wish to include a float in this year’s parade, please contact the MUD Rec. Staff at 251-9814.
