Flag-Waving Fun at Star-Spangled Sunnybrook

Blogger's Note: The following was provided by the Sunnybrook Ballroom.

Kick-off your July 4th week family celebration at the historic SunnyBrook Ballroom.

Use the courts to play some basketball and volleyball. 

Play a game of horseshoes. 

Have an All-American hotdog or hamburger from the outside grill. 

(Bring and display your classic or vintage car and receive a free sandwich.) 

The fun starts at noon. Then, at 2 p.m. join the crowd in the ballroom for a rousing flag-waving (flag provided) concert of patriotic music with an area favorite the Boyertown Alumni Marching Unit. 

Tickets for the concert are $10; children 6-12 $5; children under 6 are free. 

 Tickets can be purchased on our website at

The Boyertown Alumni Marching Unit formed in 1976 as an all-volunteer, family oriented marching unit. From its first performance in the nation’s Bicentennial Celebration to its latest concert the band has been active throughout the northeast.

More about the band:

Formed in 2004 to save the historic 20,000 square foot ballroom from the wrecking ball, the SunnyBrook Foundation operates the venue as a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation. 

Reopened in 2008 as an entertainment venue through the work of scores of community volunteers, the facility’s fine dining restaurant and Chummy’s Lounge reopened in 2011. 

During the heyday of big band music, the historic ballroom was a regular stop on the tours of all of the era’s big bands. Benny Goodman, Tommy and Jimmy Dorsey, Glenn Miller, Frank Sinatra are just a few of the names of nationally known performers who filled the room with the music of the era.

The venue continues to host community meetings, political rallies, weddings, wedding receptions, class and family reunions, high school proms, and other events.
