Harrison: Old Time Picnic

Harrison’s Old Time Picnic is a traditional community celebration with parade and family-friendly old fashioned games such as sack race, baby crawling contest, and the greased pole climb. There is also a ladies’ nail driving contest and a men’s obstacle contest.  While there are many locals and families with ties to the area, we welcome everyone to come and enjoy a celebration in Harrison’s City Park!

The three-day event begins with a dinner on Friday in the Harrison Grange Hall, where the Coronation of the King and Queen for the year takes place.  Sunday kicks off with a breakfast in the city park from 7:30 a.m. – 10 a.m., followed by the parades and activities in the park and a lunch from 11 .a.m – 2 p.m.
