Burtonsville Day Parade Celebrates Diversity with “Better Together” Theme

The 30th annual Burtonsville Day Parade and Festival took place on Sept. 25, according to the event’s flyer. The 29th annual Parade and Festival was held in 2019, while the 2020 Parade and Festival was cancelled due to the pandemic.

Saturday’s event featured live music, vendors, a demonstration by Musa Martial Arts, activities for children, and pet adoptions and services. Several organizations also worked to provide resources to the community, including free health screenings , information on County vaccination sites and voter registration.

This year’s theme “Better Together,” meant that organizers sought to encompass the community’s diversity in the festivities. Several elected officials and candidates for political office were in attendance β€” including prospective County Executive David Blair; Tom DeGonia, who is running for County State’s Attorney; and Delegate Eric Luedtke of Maryland’s 14th District.
