Armed Forces Day Parade: The Cobleskill Veterans Inc. is sponsoring the 2008 Armed Forces Day Parade. The parade will start promptly at 3:00 PM (Note the new 3PM time as of 4/1) on Saturday from the Price Chopper Plaza at the eastern end of Cobleskill and proceed down Main Street (Rt 7) to the fairgrounds. The parade start will be announced by the firing of a WWII 105 mm howitzer! Led by our Veterans, the parade will include WWII vehicles and tracked vehicles, as well as vehicles from the Korean war through Vietnam and more. You are in for the parade of a lifetime! The parade will be going right by the fairgrounds so you can easily watch it from the show grounds. For more information on the parade, go to www.cobleskillveterans.org and click on "events."
USO Show: This event is sponsored the Town of Wright/Schoharie Valley Lions Club and Cobleskill/Richmondville Lions Club. With only an $8 cover charge, you will dance the night away with the big band sounds of "The Small Town Big Band." Bringing you right back to 1943, this fabulous band from Cooperstown, NY is one of the best in the region. The band will be joined by Barb & Mitch Haverly and members of the Depot Lane singers to add to the evenings enjoyment. Food and refreshments will be available in the building. The USO show will be held in the "Progressland Building." 100% of the profits from the show are being donated to today's USO which is working around the world to help our troops.
Want to spend a second day
in the beautiful and historic Schoharie Valley? Not everyone in the
family wants to go to the WW&T Show (hard to imagine...)? There is
a ton to see and do right in the area:
The Old Stone Fort: About 20 minutes from the show grounds and
only 5 minutes from I-88, this fort was originally constructed as a
church in 1772. It is packed with artifacts representing 300 years
of history in the Schoharie Valley.
