Bulletin Staff Report

By many accounts, the ninth annual Brownwood Reunion Celebration that opened Friday downtown is the best ever. And it’s not over yet.

The Reunion’s third and final day will feature most of the same attractions that brought record crowds into Brownwood Saturday, along with the added attraction of Johnny Dee and the Rocket 88s. Their concert at 3 p.m. on Celebration Stage will help send this year’s 1950s-themed event into the history books with a flourish.

Meanwhile, participants will be watching the “Hands on A House” contest for the announcement of a winner, who will get to take the ‘50s-era designed diner home.

The vintage car show, featuring primarily vehicles from the decade of the 1950s along with a 1960 Ford used as Deputy Barney Fife’s patrol unit on The Andy Griffith Show on television, will also continue at the Brownwood Coliseum.

Downtown streets which have been blocked since Thursday night will be open again by Monday morning.
