Get Ready for Home Days: Take a Look at Some of the Events Planned
The festivities begin in one week.
Brecksville’s Home Days begin next Friday on June 29, and there is plenty planned for everyone to enjoy, from live music to pancake breakfasts to a 5K. And that’s not even counting the traditional fair food and rides!
Mayor Jerry N. Hruby said he hopes residents will come out to enjoy the downtown and their community. The local event isn’t a far drive, he said, and people can enjoy themselves by visiting the booths or the various special events.
“You don’t have to spend a lot of money while you’re here,” Hruby said.
Here’s a quick look at some of the highlights of the weekend, compiled from information provided by the city. For a look at the full schedule, visit the city’s website.
