1860 Days

   The 1860 Days committee needs your help! We are trying to find all past Grand Marshals, to invite them to join the 2010 1860 Days parade. If you know anyone who was honored in the past 50 years, please contact a committee member or Kathy at 464-1083. 1860 Days celebration is August 6, 7 and 8 this year.

   We are currently sending out vendor registration forms; first priority will be given to returning vendors. There are a limited number of spaces available, so call Kathy for a registration form early. The space charge remains the same, at ten dollars per space per day. If electricity is needed, an additional ten dollars will be charged and given to the business supplying the electricity. Craft vendors are especially invited.

   Parade registration forms are also available, and we encourage everyone interested to participate in this Big One!

   If you are a business, or just wish to be a contributor to 1860 Days’ Program, call to reserve ad space—this will be the biggest program we’ve had, and as most know, it becomes a collectors’ item and serves as a directory for local businesses. We will be designing this gem early, so please contact us.
