HARRISON — Harrison Old Home Days will take place Wednesday through Saturday, July 8 to 11.
Smokies Greater Shows will set up at Crystal Lake Park. Advance ride tickets are on sale at the Market Basket and the Village Tie-Up. Donations for the raffle booth are coming in and Harrison’s oldest resident, the holder of the Boston Post cane, Edna Lord, has agreed to serve as this year’s grand marshal.
This year’s theme is “Cruisin'” and includes a new feature on Thursday night — a Cruise Night from 6 to 9 p.m. for owners of classic cars at the town parking lot between the Harrison Village Library and Town Office Building.
Hourly raffles will be held nightly beginning at 7 p.m. and a nightly 50/50 drawing will be held at 10:30 p.m. Prizes were donated by local and neighboring businesses. And on the HOHD Stage each night, a local band will play. Returning once again on Saturday night will be the Imari Dancers and new this year, the Ballroom Dancers demonstrating Zumba, also on Saturday night.
A fireworks display on Wednesday will be shot off after dusk from the middle of Crystal Lake. Rain date is Thursday.
A Junior Parade will step off from the United Parish Congregational Church at 6 p.m. Friday featuring bikes and trikes, wagons and floats, doll carriages and walkers dressed and decorated to reflect the theme. The winners in four categories will be invited to join Saturday’s noontime grand parade.
Brochures describing the events are available at local and neighboring business.
