Come and celebrate Auburn's First Founders Day Celebration with a special tribute to the Fiftieth Anniversary of the Statehood of Alaska. This Saturday, June 6th, the parade begins at 11 a.m.....
That's right, Auburn is the home of Secretary of State, William H. Seward, whose insight caused the USA to buy Alaska from Russia in 1867. Labeled at the time as "Seward's Folly", today we consider his insight as foresight.
Anyway, this Saturday, Auburn is celebrating with a parade at 11 a.m. and special activities including balloon art, book signings, woodsmen competition, dog sled demos, a William Seward Play and Theodore Case Film Festival, arts and craftes , food, and more, more, more!!!!!
And the Special Guest for the day will be Alaska's governor, Sarah Palin.
So, if you're wondering what to do, come and visit Auburn, NY. Situated in the heart of the beautiful Fingerlakes and home to William H. Seward!!!
