Travel Light and Right
We anticipate a high turnout, so opt for carpools, bikes, or even a leisurely walk to the park. For those driving, kindly be mindful of parking regulations in the area. Overflow parking will be available at the old city hall lot on 24th and Ames Street. Don’t forget to bring a lawn chair for all the shows!
On behalf of the Hometown Festival Team, we want to express our gratitude to our hard-working volunteers and staff, generous sponsors, and all of you, our fantastic community members. Let’s come together on Sept. 23 and make it a day of unforgettable memories!
