Emmitsburg Heritage Days
Where the Past Meets the Future
Saturday, June 29, 2013
In commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg, we are celebrating a weekend filled with history, fun, and hometown entertainment.
On Saturday, June 29, the town of Emmitsburg will hold activities and events for the whole family! Visit our museums and monuments, including, The National Fallen Firefighters Monument, the National Shrine Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes, Frederick County Fire Museum and The National Shrine of Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton. At these sites take a walking history tour, join in old-time field games like “catch the greased pig”, listen to rock music or orchestral music, stop at our vendor and craft tents or community yard sales, eat barbeque, go for a swim, take a walk on our .5 mile walking path with exercise stations, watch our parade at 6pm, and join us for our magnificent fireworks at 9:30pm!
