Heritage Day 2017 In Poca

Food, Pumpkin Painting, Music, Parade

The last Saturday of September means Poca Heritage Day. The 2017 celebration continued the family-fun tradition. The colorful parade ran down Route 62 as faithful fans, dressed in red and white, lined the curb while children scrambled for candy.

After the parade, children painted pumpkins and the melodic sounds of live music filled the air from the Harding Family Group parking lot. Vendors lined each side of the street, with arts, crafts, clothing, tasty food and much, much more.

“This is always a great time for Poca to show itself off,” says Chad R. Harding, owner of Harding Family Group. “Families can bring their children and enjoy wholesome food, fun and games. It’s great for all ages.”

Pretty princesses atop convertibles are always a parade highlight.

The sweet sound of Bluegrass entertained the crowd.

Colorful pumpkin painting is always a highlight for children who love to express their creativity.

MetroNews Anchor Chris Lawrence took to the airwaves.

Poca is all about The Dots, so the town’s mascot is always a highlight.

As always Heritage Day is a free event. However, the memories are priceless!
