Home Days

Published: June 30, 2017

Friday,
June 30 - 5 to 11, Saturday, July 1 - 3 to 11, and Sunday, July 2 - 3 to 11.

Please Check Out Our Home Days Page Under News & Events for a Complete Schedule!

It’s time for a party! And there’s no party like Brecksville Home Days!
The 2017 big Home Days celebration on the Square in Brecksville will be Friday,
June 30 from 5 to 11, Saturday, July 1 from 3 to 11, and Sunday, July 2 from 3 to 11.

The Number 1 question on everyone’s mind is of course when the Home Days fireworks will be. Answer: The mightiest of them all will be Sunday night, July 2 at 10:00 pm. As always the fireworks will be accompanied by a chest-vibrating musical montage which Mayor Hruby always creates and it goes non-stop until “Elvis has Left the Building!” Plus, there’s a mini but powerful fireworks “preview” on Saturday night, July 1
at 10:00 pm.

Home Days has a different look this year with the addition of food trucks and “The Home Days Concert Series!” There will be a different concert each night from 8 to 10.
Leading off on Friday night, June 30 is Walt Wise who does a knock out Billy Joel and Elton John. Imagine all the hits you’ll hear.
On Saturday night at 8 you’ll think you’re back in the 80s and 90s with the sound of Journey. The tribute group Escape sounds just like Steve Perry. It’ll be one Journey hit after another.
On Sunday night, back by popular demand, Seven Bridges!! They are considered the best Eagles tribute band in the nation. Once again, all the Eagles’ legendary tunes from Hotel California to Take It Easy and on and on. Two nonstop hours going right up to the humongous fire works!!!
And of course there are polkas with Johnny Pastirik on Saturday afternoon and Wayne Tomsic on Sunday afternoon. Both shows are 3 to 5.

There will be lots of stage activity from 5 to 8 each night including the “Entertainer of the Year” contest. Thanks to Dr. John Hudec of Brecksville and his Hudec Dental Associates the Entertainer of the Year Contest is back with preliminary rounds on Friday and Saturday night and the finals for $1,000 in prize money on Sunday night. Each year the competition is monumental!
You’ll be able to join in yoga, see our championship athletes from BBHHS, and Amazon Eric and his animals. Get up close with animals from the Metroparks and even The Cleveland Police Pipe and Drum Band!
And of course the famous Mayor and Ted trivia contests return this year to win prizes from local merchants and a much sought after Home Days T-Shirt!

If you’re feeling lucky there’s a free grand prize raffle every night. Sign up at the Brecksville City booth for prizes from generous Brecksville merchants. And buy a chance on winning a fabulous Fisher Price Power Wheels Ford F-150 for your son or daughter or grandchild. It’s being raffled off thanks to a great donation from Valley Ford Truck. The raffle will benefit the construction of a new Safety Town.
