Friday night, hundreds of people came & visited 14 Massachusetts museums that brought activities for kids and historical items for all to enjoy. The Appraisal Faire returned and the five antique appraisers were presented with many interesting and never before seen items. There were lots of happy faces in the Selectmens' Chamber. The audience listened and enjoyed their explanations and many of the appraised pieces were in great shape. Zoll Cellars Winery joined us this year and provided a delicious mix of wine and mead for the attendees. The Old Timer Restaurant returned for its second year of the wine and beer tasting in the Fallon Auditorium. Many enjoyed the selections while reminiscing with old friends. Outside at our Food Court, the food vendors provided a wide variety of foods and no one left the park hungry. Luckily, the rain and mist from earlier in the morning, held off for our movie in the park, which boasted a large crowd as well.
Saturday's weather was a little dreary at first, but that wasn't going to stop our Olde Home Day faithfuls from coming out and enjoying what always promises to be a great family fun day. From the delicious food at the Food Court to the new Air Bag Stunt Jump, kids & adults alike had a great experience. Parents watched as their kids performed in the Clinton High School Band under the direction of Band Director Katherine Meifert, as the American Legion raised the American Flag. With the guidance of music teacher Samantha Lovewell, the younger middle school children sang (for the 1st time) on the Town Hall steps, with many proud parents in the crowd. Later in the day outside in the park, parents got a chance to watch students from Cody's Martial Arts demonstrate their skills for all to enjoy. Olde Home Day is a wonderful family experience and provides a public platform for local groups to perform outside of school or club activities. WingMasters returned again with their inside live raptor exhibits, much to the enjoyment of everyone. As always, their shows were educational & exciting at the same time.
Clinton Olde Home Day was a great success for the town. Visitors from the area & beyond came thru, purchased items from local artisans and vendors, experienced our 1st Farmers' Market. Many had fun on the inflatables, enjoyed the interactive musical group Toe Jam Puppet Band, the Arcade on Wheels, Laser Tag and the Gyro Space Ball experience and just had a great family day. Olde Home Day had something for everyone. Thank you all for attending and making OHD much more than an event, its' become an important Autumn date not to be missed.
Next month, our committee begins planning for 2016. Stand by... it will be another exciting year!!
