Hundreds of Brentwoodians took to the streets Saturday, April 13 to celebrate the city’s 50th birthday.

Some wore costumes and rode in elaborate floats. Others donned Scouts vests, cheerleading uniforms or matching T-shirts.

More than 120 groups participated in the parade — the first of three birthday events this year — including presenting sponsor Tractor Supply Company.

The parade route was 1.5 mile loop, beginning at Tractor Supply, moving down Virginia Way and over to Maryland Way via Ward Circle. The route turned left at Powell Place to make its final turn back onto Virginia Way.

The city was incorporated on April 15, 1969. The next two events the city will hold are music festival “Brentfest” on June 15 and “Rendezvous at Ravenswood” party on Oct. 10.
