Dublin’s Bicentennial Celebration, Heritage Day, on Saturday, October 2.

I had an email about the Dublin Bicentennial Celebration from Bernie Vance at the Plain City Historical Society. The Heritage Day event, which is free, is being sponsored by the Dublin Historical Society and will feature educational, living history and family activities. This will appeal to all history lovers, but especially to history teachers and elementary students.

Here is the info on Heritage Day:

“Step Back in Time at Heritage Day – Dublin’s Bicentennial Celebration

“In celebration of Dublin’s Bicentennial, the Dublin Historical Society will present ‘Heritage Day’ on Saturday, Oct. 2 from 12-6 p.m. at Coffman Park and Homestead, 5300 Emerald Pkwy. Admission is free. The event will open with bagpipers calling visitors to the city’s time capsule dedication ceremony. Visitors will experience village life from the 1800s and early 1900s through a variety of games and activities, including blacksmith shop; rag-doll making and hand-made ice cream. Dublin Chamber Ambassadors will oversee tug of war and sack races.

“Other features include horse-drawn buggy rides; performances by the newly revived Dublin Cornet Band; presentations about Wyandot Chief Leatherlips, Johnny Appleseed and native wildlife; re-enactment of a one-room school; farm equipment displays; vintage dancing; and tours of the historic Coffman House and Barn. The Washington Township Fire Dept. will demonstrate fighting fires of the past with a bucket brigade, and the USPS will be on hand for unique Bicentennial stamp cancellations. Food and beverages will be available for purchase.

“Volunteers needed!
Contact Christine Nardecchia at the Dublin Municipal Offices, 614-410-4400.
