Stop the Presses !

Englewood Pioneer Days is celebrating 60 years !

The committee is very excited to share all of the events and the celebration of the history

with the community.

This year we had many ideas submitted for the theme.

After considering each entry, the committee blended ideas and we are pleased to announce this years theme...  

"Englewood Rocks  

Six Decades" 

​Thanks to Margo Grimshaw for her suggestion of "Englewood Rocks"

and the committees addition of

"Six Decades". We have a winner !

The theme will give all those building floats for the parade and decorating their booths a lot of room

(six decades) to be creative.
