Countdown to Labor Day 2018…
“Make Plans Now!”
Old Home Day is our #1 event of the year! It is Always on Labor Day, rain or shine! This family friendly event brings the community together for a fun-filled day of fellowship, relaxation and plenty of food and entertainment! The fun begins at 10:30 A.M and runs until about 6PM.
The first Old Home Day was held on September 5, 1960 and has been on Labor Day ever since. The first Old Home Day event had community members gathering together for slide shows of hunting trips, vacations or anything exciting or meaningful they had done over the past year.
Local community members and bands entertained the crowd. In former years, Old Home day had log sawing contests, spike driving contests, miniature tractor pulls, and a flower show. Cranberry high schools FFA (Future Farmers of America) held greased pig contests. Bill and Donna Hart organized a car show which was, and still is today, a huge attraction. Bill and Donna continue to organize and contribute to the success of this part of Old Home Day!
