Olde Home Day 2005

Old Home Day 2005 began with a very warm day, unlike the celebration of 2004 which was cool and at times even damp. The volunteers of the Interlaken Community Action Group closed off Main Street early in the morning and vendors began to line the street. Carrying over some of the ideas of Olde Home Day 2004 a bit of history was replayed, and other new events were featured.

For many Olde Home Day is shopping the various vendors, great food starting with breakfast and going well into the evening at the auction and concert. Another highlight of the day is the parade with its bands, color guards, floats, organizations and the Citizen of the Year.

In 2004, for the Centennial Celebration, community members were invited to dedicate leaves on the centennial quilt. Completed following the 2004 celebration, it was on display for all to see in 2005.

Your eyes aren't playing tricks on you, show here are Allan Buddle of the Interlaken Historical Society, Paul Stillman as Ben Franklin and Chris Nelson, a member of ICAG.

In the afternoon, Nasty Ned the Frontiersman talked to a gathering of people while a basketball game continues on Main Street. Also on display at the Farmers' Museum are the corn sheller and a farmer's wagon.

The 2005 Historical Society Fashion show brought back a few familiar dresses and added several new ones. Shown below are a group of ladies from the 19th and 20th century waiting for the parade to begin. In the background is Car Pride, always a welcome addition to the Parade.

It's been said that a picture is worth 10,000 words. This picture says a lot about Olde Home Day. Music, food, entrainment for all and a touch of history.
