Are you missing “the Mack” due to schedule conflicts, time constraints, or just because massive crowds of MINI folk aren’t your thing?
Anticipate being back from the Mack and looking for some follow-up, relaxing fun that’s closer to home?
The Holy Cross Festival and Parade has become an annual tradition for EIM. Activities include the parade, a charity auction, live band, bouncy houses for the kids, a barbecue, and more. The heart of the festival is right in front of the home of EIMers Linda & Tom R.
The parade will stage on Saturday, August 8th starting at ~10:30 am for an approximate noon start. Prior to that time, there will be a car wash spot set up in the driveway (956 Main Street) for anyone who feels so called (like me!). If the street in front of the house as you come into town from the south is closed, just drive around the block and you’ll get there. We’ll do a little MINI decorating with our stash of goods before we head out to the parade staging area.
As in past years, Linda and Tom have graciously invited us all into their home after the parade for a great feast, beverages, and fellowship. They supply a wide variety of drink and that famous broasted chicken from the local pub. Any side dish or snack to share is always welcomed but not at all required or expected. It’s always great fun to relax on the porch after the parade, enjoy the superb food, drink, and MINI talk, and watch (or participate in) all of the festival activities happening right out on the street in front.
Parade preregistration is not necessary — but as a courtesy to our hosts please let us know if you’re joining us using the directions below (click on the **Read More** button from the home page).
