Stand By Me Day July 23 in Brownsville BROWNSVILLE — Are you a Stand By Me movie fan? Join with other fans from all around the world, share some stories, see where the movie was filmed, engage in a little nostalgia and walk the streets of “Castle Rock” on July 23, 2023. The movie Stand By Me was partly filmed in Brownsville in 1985 and was released 37 years ago. To celebrate this fact Brownsville hosts Stand By Me Day every July 23. This year’s event will be based at the Linn County Historical Museum on Park Avenue and the Library Park next door from 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM. One of the fan’s favorite activities is going on a guided walking tour through town to see where some of their favorite scenes were filmed and hear random trivia and tales from the filming. There will also be a blueberry pie eating contest open to anyone for those who enjoy a great photo opportunity. If you are not into having pie on your face, we will be serving wonderful blueberry pie by the slice, complete with tractor churned ice cream and a fork. The Fan Forum is always fun with interesting trivia and conversation. You will hear some great 50’s music sung by the roaming Acapella Stand By Me Singers, a car or two from the movie and a Vintage Car Cruise-In. The highly successful Adventure Lab Geocache Challenge will be back as well. The Red Food Trailer will be there with their classic 50’s fair food. There will be hula hoops, hopscotch, sack races and other 1950s games for kids of all ages to enjoy. Keep an eye out for Oregon Blueberry Commission’s mascot, Ima Blueberry and possibly some cherry flavored PEZ. If you love the movie, you won’t want to miss this party!
