The Brooklyn Center Recreation department has, and continues to make a number of heartbreaking decisions to revise, postpone and cancel many programs and events that we all look forward to each year. One of the highlights of the year is the chance to celebrate the Brooklyn Center community with our neighbors, volunteers, faith-based and non-profit organizations, local schools, healthcare providers, emergency responders, private organizations and more. We have held off on the decision to revise, postpone or cancel as long as we possibly could in hopes that an opportunity to gather safely would present itself. However, we do not foresee a safe way to meet and celebrate community while still capturing the spirit of the event and therefore we are canceling Earle Brown Days 2020. We want to take a moment now to thank all of the previous volunteers, attendees, sponsors, vendors and partnering agencies that have contributed to the event over the past 37 years and know that we will gather again someday. Until then, stay safe and be well.
