2018 Old Settlers Picnic

The UHS Class of 1958 was in the parade.

For 113 years people have been gathering on Uniontown’s square to celebrate Labor Day.

Vendors dot the treed park, children and adults play games, groups sell food and drink for the annual picnic. There is also recognition of the oldest present at the picnic, the longest residency in Uniontown and who drove the farthest to attend.

Through the years other events have been added, a children’s fishing derby, a talent show, rodeos, and community church service.

And there is a parade.

The 2018  Old Settler’s Picnic was September 3  this year.

Mary Bruner was honored as the grand marshall of the parade, which always fills the town square perimeter with visitors.

Pictured is the Bruner family throwing candy to children during the parade route.

The parade was filled with children, past and future Uniontown High School graduates, fire volunteers, motorcycles, old machinery,  floats, politicians, and horses.
