Well another year has almost gone by and here we are again preparing for our 11th Annual Show. This year the show will be held on August 13th and 14th. This past year has been very busy for us and we are very proud of a number of accomplishments. We had out 1st Annual Spring Fling which gave everyone time to catch up and visit before the big show. Along with that we have been steadily making improvements to the museum and I'm sure you will be impressed with how much work has been completed since last years show. And here were are again patiently counting down the days!!!
Like we mentioned before, if you have any interest in Brockway's, and can only attend one show, this is the one. You will not be disappointed!
The show kicks off with a pre-show barbeque fundraiser which will be held on Friday night from 5 - 8 right at the Museum. This is a good chance have a great meal and check out the how much progress has been made on the Museum. Please keep in mind the barbeque is prepay. All proceeds go to the Brockway National Museum Fund. Click here for more information.
After the barbeque, the auction will start right at 8:00 which will also be held at the Museum. The proceeds from the auction directly benefit the Museum. If you have anything Brockway related that you would contribute to the auction, please click here.
Following the auction we also have fireworks which is something new this year. Everyone enjoys watching fireworks in the summer so make sure you stick around to catch the show. The fireworks will start at 9:30.
Then on Saturday, something everyone looks forward to is the parade. At 8:00, the trucks will all line up at the Museum and get ready to proceed through downtown Cortland directly to Main Street. The parade starts at 8:30 and the streets will be lined with spectators, young and old alike, all waiting for the various trucks to roll buy. The parade usually takes a half hour or so and shortly after all the trucks will be parked within two blocks on Main Street. The show will run from 9:00 to 3:30 and the Cortland County Historical Society will also have a display. During the show be sure to check out the Husky Dog Exhibit (from 10 to 3), the Diamond Someday Bluegrass Band (from 11 to 2). The show wraps up at 3:00 with the Presentation of the Awards.
Following the show will be a Chicken Barbeque which will also be held at the Museum. The barbeque will start at 5:00 and will also recognize former Brockway Employee's.
