BRODHEAD - Brodhead's Covered Bridge Days is back August 7-9.This year, the event will celebrate the 25th anniversary of the national award-winning Clarence Covered Bridge replica, constructed by the Brodhead Jaycees.The original bridge, which spanned the Sugar River on Wisconsin 11/81, collapsed in 1931, after a 30-ton trailer truck crashed through the floor. Also this year, the event will feature four continuous hours of musical and an antique tractor drive through the county; horse shows also return this year. Attendees enjoyed a jazz band, which played last year so much that the Brodhead Chamber of Commerce has put four bands back-to-back this year, for an entire afternoon of entertainment.
