Brandon Focuses on Community
People often ask what makes Brandon so unique. The short answer is that Brandon has grown to a city of over 23,000, people but has never lost its small-town charm. Our schools, churches, businesses, citizens, and government work together to improve life for those that call Brandon home. Our diverse offering of programs bring people together and spend time with each other.
Memorial Flag Field
Each year, the Exchange Club of Crossgates displays 500 full-size American flags that originally flew on the Exchange Club’s first 9/11 Memorial Flag Field. The flags fly on the soccer fields to remind travelers along the interstate that freedom comes at a price.
Back to School Bash
Back to School Bash kicks off the school year and allows parents and children time to walk around and see their friends and visit vendors, grab a bag of popcorn, and watch the Brandon band, cheerleaders, and dance team.
Princess Ball is a unique event to Brandon where dads and their daughters get to spend time together dancing, visiting friends, having pictures made with Miss Mississippi, and using props in the photo booth.
Patriotism in the Park
Patriotism in the Park is our annual 4th of July celebration that provides something for everyone. The children’s bike parade and space jumps provide free, quality fun for kids while multi-church choirs sing patriotic songs, all followed by an exciting fireworks show.
On Red Friday’s, our businesses offer discounts to people wearing red in support of the Brandon football team.
