In a Daze: Hayden celebrates history

Organizers are finalizing the plans for this year’s Hayden living history day, which will be from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sept. 3.

Using its 1947 Sinclair gas station as the centerpiece, the Hayden Historical Museum plans to transform the property into a giant one-day display of classic cars and trucks, model year 1991 and older, according to a news release.

There will be no entry fees, judging, prizes or awards. It’s planned as just a fun day to give car enthusiasts a chance to show off their vehicles.

The Reunion Band will perform rock ‘n’ roll and popular music at 10 a.m. on the pavilion stage.

Beginning at 1 p.m. and continuing throughout the afternoon, bluegrass and gospel music will be provided by the bands Infinity, Liberty Hill, Homeward Bound, High Octane, Friends of Bluegrass, Backwoods Bluegrass, Bluegrass Revival and Midwest Station.

The Hayden Historical Museum and A Place Called Yesterday will be open. There also will be demonstrations at the Sullivan Blacksmith Shop; a pie baking contest with the top three pies to be auctioned; the annual Spencer Township Volunteer Fire Department’s chicken barbecue; the Luke Elsner Memorial 5K Run and Walk; and the classic car and truck parade, which will be at 3 p.m.
