Grindstone Parade

Every year, the BBA participates in the annual Grindstone Parade in the City of Berea. We usually have the largest group in the parade and the kids have fun and get to pass out candy to spectators. We encourage all BBA players to participate in the parade. Please wear your uniforms (at least the shirt and hat) to show off your team.


The 2022 Grindstone Parade will be on July 3rd. The parade will step off ay 4pm from the Cuyahoga County Fairgrounds, located at 19201 East Bagley Road. Please arrive between 3 and 3:30pm. Enter through the main gate (Victory Arch) off of Eastland Road.


If you would like to walk with your athlete(s) you may do so. Please do not bring animals (unless it is a certified service dog), bicycles, scooters, wagons, etc. BBA players will walk behind the BBA truck. There is parking as you enter the main gate off of Eastland Road. If you choose not to walk but have your athlete(s) participate, please ensure that they enter through the Eastland Road gate and get to the meeting area. There will be volunteers to assist you to the meeting area.


Coaches and BBA board members will be present but parents/guardians are responsible for their athlete(s). If you choose not to walk but drop off your athlete(s), please designate a meeting spot to pick them up. The parade will end at the Eastland Road gate (Victory Arch).


We hope to see you there!
