Seven Hills Celebrates 60 Years As A City: Welcomes Back Home Days
Better Together, celebrating 60 years as a city- the theme of Seven Hills 2021 Home Days encompasses what we have all learned over the past year, that we are nothing without our community and have been lucky to have ours for the past 60 years. The City of Seven Hills is excited to celebrate the community together with the renaissance of our Home Days taking place August 27th, 28th and 29th. After a year of uncertainty and 2020 Stay-At-Home-Days, this year will be a return to form for one of the cities most celebrated events. Refocusing his efforts to engage the community and bring residents together even more, Mayor Biasiotta looks to bring a small town feel to the city’s largest event. To do so, the City of Seven Hills has added a 3rd day to help continue old traditions, make new traditions, and reinvigorate some from the past. Its most iconic events include, a chicken wing eating competition, three days of live music, two days of fireworks and plenty of local food. Each event keeps the audience enthralled as members of the community come together and celebrate the accomplishments of the past. With the old comes the new such as, rides from Big O Amusement, Seven Hills very own WIXY1260 Online broadcasting live from the event, and various classes held at the city’s recreation building. Finally, a community favorite makes a triumphant return as the Adorable Baby Showcase is set to take place on August 29th. These new and old traditions are just a fragment of everything happening. There will be nonstop entertainment that brings together residents from all walks of life that truly showcase the meaning of community.
Residents will be on full display for Sunday August 29th as Mayor Biasiotta has dedicated the day to showcase some of Seven Hills brightest stars. This exciting day will feature bands in which at least one member is a resident, the Seven Hills Hall of Fame induction ceremony and activities tailored to fit the needs of all residents. For kids they can run wild in this year’s Kidz Zone which will feature crafts, games, a safety fair, and music tailored for age-appropriate engagement. On Sunday August 29th catch local celebrity Jungle Terry and his coterie preform, displaying the most exotic animals from across the globe at the Kidz Zone. New to Home Days this year is the Community Corner featuring many community groups in their own booth to recruit new members and fundraise. With two different stages and a time-honored radio station there is sure to be nonstop music that keeps the event lively for all. After a long day of fun make sure to stop by and eat at the various food vendors featuring a diverse array of options sure to meet any residents’ cravings. All of this is possible thanks to the unflagging efforts of the volunteer committee which has been working for months leading into Home Days. Additionally, thanks to our sponsors, Legacy Health Services, Waste Management and Cox Communication we have been able to include more for this year’s event, without them we would not be able to keep the costs low for our residents.
