OLDE FASHIONED SUNDAY
Welcome to a celebration of 60 years for Yankee Homecoming and also for WNPB radio – the home of the Legends
Olde Fashioned Sunday on July 30th will be a great day to remember the beginnings of our Yankee Homecoming celebrations. We can enjoy some “new” events so as to make future memories for the current younger generations as the past has given some of us the “good ole’ days” to remember.
Olde Fashioned Sunday 2017 begins on the stage with the opportunity to show the audience your favorite pets. Every person and pet is a winner in this event. The formal opening of Yankee Homecoming will include the introduction of all the past chairperson and the singing of the national anthem.
When the stage has been reset get ready to be entertained by talented groups of singers and dancers from the 60’s so wear your favorite tie dye shirts, head bands, fringed vests and bell bottom pants!
The Midway will be a favorite for all the kids. Every game is free and all kids get a prize. Then families are invited to have some fun participating in old fashioned games – three legged races, the egg in the spoon race and many more.
All this activity will make you hungry. Our favorite vendors are going to be ready to offer some great food. Then sweeten your day with candy from Shirley Lattime’s Country Store as they offer your favorite candy from a past era. Penny candy is no longer a penny but the flavors and sweetness are still the same. There’s popcorn too!!
There will be train rides around the pond, face painting, pony rides, water safety tips, K9 demonstrations, classic cars displays and the final event of the day – a birthday party for our local radio station – WNBP – free birthday cake for everyone.
Olde Fashioned Sunday will offer fun and something for all ages.
Come enjoy the day with us!
