"Let’s get ready for Sonoma County’s “shortest parade” right here in Bodega. It starts at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday August 19th. If you want to participate in the parade, please visit bodegafire.org and apply for a (float) spot or to be a craft vendor. If simply attending, be prepared for flying sweet morsels.
Bodega’s annual Big Event is in its 38th year with FREE fun, entry and parking. You can find places to park on Bodega Lane and Salmon Creek Road. It goes from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. You will not want to miss out on the entertaining times with great people. Open to all Sonoma County friends!
The Bodega Volunteer Fire Department is an immeasurable asset to our community and I suggest we jump at every opportunity to support them so they can keep returning the favor and helping us stay safe. As the name implies, this event is the biggest fundraiser of the year. So bring friends and family, and make sure to pack healthy appetites and thirst along with a desire to have fun.
You can look forward to next month’s activities with excitement and hunger. There will be a tri-tip and chicken BBQ with beer, wine and bloody marys for sale. You should expect games for all ages, various raffle prizes, a silent auction and local craft vendors. There’s something for everyone.
We will enjoy live music from a couple local bands. The Used Goods is a local rock n’ roll band specializing in Classic Rock, similar to the Rolling Stones, Beatles, Chuck Berry and others. The Highway Poets is another popular rock group combined with genres of RnB, pop, Folk/Country and classic west coast southern rock soul. Come get your groove on and dance with us.
