art8796


A 64-year-old tradition continues as Chatham American Legion Post 759 hosts Homecoming, its “street picnic” on the Chatham square Thursday, June 23, through Saturday, June 25. Carnival rides are only $1 on Thursday night from 5 p.m. to close, and Saturday from 12-4 p.m. Food and drinks include walleye fish sandwiches, chicken strips, river fries, brats, barbeque sandwiches and more. Nightly at 7:30 p.m. listen to The Mud Bugs, Still Kick’n and KFD respectively. Saturday at 2 p.m. watch the parade make its way through the streets. The festival began to honor returning troops and continues to support all military, those who served or are serving. Chatham American Legion WWII veterans will ride in the parade. Show your support and appreciation.
