The Alvin Rotary Club is preparing to celebrate Alvin Frontier Days on Saturday, April 30, 2022 .
They kick off the weekend with an old-fashioned “Barn Dance” on Friday night at Scopel Square across from the carnival, which is running from Thursday through Saturday at Stanton’s parking lot. The barn dance will have food, beer, and live music by Rush Creek Band.
Saturday morning at 9am begins the Frontier Day Parade through the old downtown area of Alvin. Last year, there were over 200 entries in the parade, and it appears there will be even more this year. An estimated 20,000 people watched last year’s parade, and this year’s crowd is expected to be even greater. Frontier Day is a tradition in Alvin, and it is good family-style entertainment enjoyed by visitors from surrounding communities.
Later in the day at National Oak Park, there will be a car and bike show, vendors, food, and fun activities for the whole family. The Alvin Rotary Club Gunfighters perform their popular shootout twice during the day. Frontier Day brings many people to downtown Alvin and most return year after year to enjoy the entertainment and full day of activities.
