Homecoming Week is here!!!
- Jul. 31, 2017
Come join the fun this weekend!
After many months of planning, the Deckerville Homecoming Committee wishes to welcome everyone to this year’s Homecoming festival this weekend….Friday, Saturday & Sunday, August 4-5-6.
There are plenty of events going on, beginning with the popular village-wide garage sales Friday throughout town and the Funtastic Free Family Health Fair at the school from 10 am – 2 pm. Friday evening features some big events: the TTPA Tractor Pull at Wilson Park at 6:00 pm and the Fireworks at dusk. The fireworks display gets shot off on school property and can be seen in many locations around town, but there may not be a better place to see them than right at the school grounds. Prior to the fireworks, Live Fire Dancers return for another year of popular entertainment at the school at 9:30 pm.
Saturday is the big day, packed with activities, including a 5K Run/Walk, Craft Show and Bake Sale, Book Sale and Horseshoes. The DLOW’s Grand Parade starts at the west end of town at noon with this year’s theme being: “Lions & Tigers & Wings….Oh My!” There are lots of activities for all ages at Wilson Park during the day including the return of another year of Deckerville Idol at the Wilson Park Band Shell followed by Rock Harley who is a Johnny Cash impersonator performing at the Band Shell starting around 2:30. The Eastern Mich. tractor pull starts at 3:00. Fairytale Entertainment returns again this year with Batman, Wonder Woman, Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty scheduled to appear! There will also be the Space Walk games/activities, face painting, a petting zoo, pony rides and Jewls the Clown. On Main Street, the Car Show and Cruise returns for its 28th year.
Throughout the weekend at Wilson Park there is a selection of food booths including Bechler’s, the Goodtimers (including Roast Pork Dinners Saturday at 1:00), and Mexican food.
Saturday night always brings in a big crowd. The American Legion Refreshment Tent is the center of activity with the live band performance of “Los Gringos” at the Band Shell throughout the evening.
The raffle drawings for the Homecoming Raffle and the DLOW will be held at 11:00 pm. Homecoming raffle ticket proceeds help pay for this annual festival; first prize is $500 cash.
The Homecoming finishes up Sunday at the Sportsman’s Club with a Co-ed softball tournament and chicken barbecue.
