Now in its 18th year, the annual SeaScare Parade gets underway at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Aug.14 in Brier.

The parade theme is scary sea creatures, octopi, pirates, boats, nautical or any sea-related idea. 

Note that Brier Road will close to traffic at 6 p.m. on the day of the event from 238th to 228th. Detour routes will be available.

The parade begins just north of the library (232nd) and moves south down Brier Road ending just past Brier Realty (238th).
