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.
The parade was filled with children, past and future Uniontown High School graduates, fire volunteers, motorcycles, old machinery, floats, politicians, and horses.
One thought on “2018 Old Settlers Picnic”
Labor Day is not just a holiday, it the way to consolidate people making them be aware of themselves as of a solid community able to change future.
