For 155 years, Green Township has been the site of the Harvest Home Fair and Parade. This event is a Cincinnati tradition with deep roots that began in 1860 with the celebration of the harvest from the area’s fertile land.
Harvest Home Parade – 6 pm – September 4, 2014
People place their chairs well in advance along the parade route to make sure they have the perfect view. This parade starts at the corner of Bridgetown Road and Harrison Avenue and turns left onto North Bend Road, ending at Harvest Home Park.
Blogger’s Note: I remember participating in this parade as part of the Walnut Hills High School marching band in the 1970s. It was hot marching in uniform.
