17th Annual America's Hometown Thanksgiving Celebration
A major goal of the America's Hometown Thanksgiving Celebration is to honor our veterans.

In showing the preservation of America's history through the years, beginning with the Pilgrim era, we promote an appreciation among our citizens for our rich heritage.

Drum & Bugle Corps Reunion Concert
Drum and Bugle Corps defined post World War II America. Riding the strong wave of God and country that followed the courage of veterans returning home, the music was patriotic, loyal to America and one's Corps, and loud.
America's Hometown Thanksgiving Celebration is proud to bring "the best of the best" each year for the Reunion Concert.
Nothing could be more fitting than this reminder of who we are and why we love liberty as Americans.
