Bulletin Staff Report

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

The Reunionís 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 yearís 1950s-themed event into the history books with a flourish.

Meanwhile, participants will be watching the ďHands on A HouseĒ contest for the announcement of a winner, who will get to take the Ď50s-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 Fifeís 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.
