Who’s getting excited for Hometown Days? 


A look back at Sidewalk Days which was the predecessor to Historical Days and the current Hometown Days. The New Carlisle Business & Men’s Professional Organization and the downtown merchants started sidewalk days in the late 1950s early 60s. Unsure of the exact year. This ad is from the 1965 New Carlisle News and the photo of the parade is from 1964.

Memorial Park will be full of fun things to do, July 28-30.
Spot your favorite library worker as we walk in the parade on Saturday.
The library is also sponsoring Clark the Juggler on Saturday at 1:30 p.m.
Clark the Juggler’s act uses juggling, stunts, music, humor, theatrics, and anything else that serves the goal of creating an experience of wonder and excitement.
Hometown Days is a great time to visit with your neighbors and support local vendors.
