Boonville’s birthday is right around the corner, and to celebrate the occasion, the Annual Heritage Days has been bringing out the fun.

As this annual celebration gets underway, there may be a few items that local citizens may need to be aware of.

Boonville Area Chamber of Commerce Director Laura Wax is very thrilled about this year’s event.

“We are really excited about the 28th Annual Heritage Days celebration.  We have everyone’s favorites again this year, the quilt show, art show, car show, beer and wine gardens, steak dinner, food and craft vendors, etc.  We are excited to have a dunking booth on Main Street for Saturday and you can play mini golf on the Kemper lawn as well.  Even if Mother Nature decides to be uncooperative, we’ll still be uptown and having a great time.  Make sure you make time to come out and join us this weekend,” Wax stated.

There will be several roads closed during the event, including Main Street during the Heritage Days Parade.

Heritage Days to open with 
Sauerkraut Serenaders

 

The 
Sauerkraut Serenaders performance will open the Boonville 2017 Heritage Days on Friday. 



“The infamous serenaders will open with a Brown Bag Lunch Concert at noon at the Hain House Garden. The ensemble will present their finest, biggest and impressive performance of 2017 with the best in marches, polkas, waltzes and swing. The concert will begin with the official opening ceremonies of Boonville Heritage Days followed by a plethora of musical selections to please the most perceptive ears. This marks the 28th year of performing in the Hain House Gardens for the Serenaders. They have more music, make more noise and have more fun than any other group with whose name has ‘Sauerkraut’ in the title.,” a release from the Friends of Historic Boonville stated. “The Sauerkraut Serenaders motto: ‘If you don’t like our music, you’ll hate our jokes.”

A complete lineup of events was published in the June 14 edition of the Boonslick Weekly.
