Horses, marching bands, kids and coffee, what do these things have in common? The Gilbert Days Parade of course!
This iconic event will be held next Saturday, November 17th, 2018 at 8:30 am and will travel South on Gilbert Road and pass right in front of our own Bergies Coffee Roast House. For the past 9 years Bergies has offered one of the best seats in town to watch the parade while enjoying a great drink and a delicious pastry.
This event has been taking place for over 60 years. The parade is only one of several events scheduled this next week, including a rodeo and a half marathon. These events are promoting community in addition to celebrating our heritage and unique community.
The parade is truly a throwback to a form of entertainment that doesn’t involve a computer, or cell phone. It’s a chance to bring young and old together to laugh at the clowns, run for candy thrown from the floats or just cheer on your favorite marching band or dance troupe in the parade.
In addition, to the parade a half marathon will also be happening in the lane next to the parade. Be sure to give those tired runners some encouragement also.
I so appreciate that the Town of Gilbert continues to keep our parade a priority. As part of the ever- changing Heritage District it is refreshing to have an event that provides more family friendly entertainment.
One last note, I want to thank our amazing customers for their patience and loyalty during the continued construction zone surrounding our business. We know how frustrating it is to find parking and our quiet garden many times is filled with construction noise.
Many things continue to change around us but be assured Bergies is committed to continue with the priorities that make your visit not just about a great drink but about the your entire experience.
We are so thankful for this community and the opportunity to serve you.
Happy Gilbert Days!
