Pittsburg Old Home Day
It’s about a 45-minute drive to Pittsburg and, if you travel in early or late light, you’re almost guaranteed to see a moose. The festivities begin around 11 am with a parade rolls down Main Street. All are welcome to enter a float and you never know what you’ll see in the parade, anything from antique cars, tractors, local and state law enforcement, fire trucks, dump trucks to some very entertaining float designs. If you want to participate, parade registration is held the morning of the parade at the Murphy Dam Ball Park. Vendors, crafters and food concessions are available at the Town Park throughout the day. There are several contests to enter as well, including photography, baking, flower arrangements, and a kids’ fishing derby. For the music lovers, a band or two usually perform during the day as well.
