New looks, sounds and experiences are planned for the annual Vernon Labor Day Homecoming Celebration to encourage residents from other counties to attend.
For more than 50 years, the town has marked its history with a homecoming celebration during the holiday weekend. This year’s free festival is Sunday and Monday on the Jennings County Courthouse lawn.
The event will feature games and activities for children, live music, food, and arts and crafts booths.
“We are making a serious effort to make this event more fun,” Vernon Mayor Daniel Wright said. “There will be entertainment on the courthouse lawn and several activities for kids, which will create a more festive atmosphere.”
In an effort to keep the tradition of the annual Labor Day festival alive, the mayor, members of the City Council and many volunteers have assumed the responsibility of planning the festival.
“We hope this transition to a more festive event will be successful,” Wright said.
