Kelleys Island celebrates 38th homecoming

The Kelleys Island Landowners Association is hosting the 38th Homecoming festival on Saturday, Aug. 18, on Kelleys Island.
The theme this year is Celebrate Kelleys Island. How do you celebrate the island? It may be swimming or fishing, relaxing in the sun, maybe sampling the fine tastes of the pubs and restaurants or bird watching or hiking.
Festivities start at 11 a.m. with a parade along the south shore that ends at the picnic pavilion on Addison Street. Last year’s parade featured a collection of classic cars, hand-made floats and lots of unusual costumes and decorated golf carts and cars.
