Hometown Days – A Beloved Fun-loving Tradition in San Carlos since 1979
“Family fun since 1979!” – Hometown Days is a weekend where people of San Carlos come together to celebrate each other, and the happenings during the year.
The event kicks off with a parade where different groups in San Carlos – school bands, girl scouts, police and firemen, non-profits, and others – ride their own float and present themselves to the community.
After the parade, its a whole weekend with tons of food and lovely music in Burton Park, where the attendees enjoy a variety of activities, special demonstrations, and presentations. Antique and classic cars. Country Western Dancing. Fire Department’s Arial rescue and “jaws of life” demonstrations. Puppet shows. Concessions. Arts and Crafts. Moon walk. Horseshoe tournament. Pony rides. Choo Choo train rides. Pet Parade. Artist sales. 4-H Petting Zoo. Jugglers. Magicians. The Amazing Mr. Bubbleman. 3-legged races. For many years on Sunday morning at 7am (weather permitting), Hot Air Balloon Rides were also part of the fun.*
After decades upon decades, the San Carlos Hometown Days celebration still stands, and its original purpose – to build community – remains intact.
