And we have several storytelling events at the We Piddle Around Theater throughout the year,” Bowden said. “The Brundidge Business Association sponsors the annual Independence Day and Christmas parades and an arts and crafts show in the spring. The Pike County Chamber of Commerce has a satellite office at the Johnston Mill, which is listed on the Alabama Register of Historical places. So, there’s a lot going on in Brundidge throughout the year. We have many things that make us unique.”The “Absolutely Alabama” segment featuring Brundidge is scheduled to be shown at 6 p.m. Friday on Channel 12. It will also be seen across the state.
