The town of Hickory celebrates its citizens, its town and its heritage today at Hickory Day 2004.
All events are under the oak trees in Hickory's downtown park from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. today. Hickory Day is hosted by the Chamber of Commerce.
Organizers expect several hundred people to attend the festival. Proceeds will benefit the Hickory Volunteer Fire Department.
First held in 1983, Hickory Day was formerly known as the Hickory Jubilee. It has grown from a small gathering to a community celebration.
Area singers will provide entertainment on the stage in the park. A car show also will be set up in the park. The public will vote on their favorite car and pick the winners in various categories.
Arts and crafts booths will be set up throughout the park and along Main Street. Food will be limitless. Items to munch on will include snow cones, cotton candy and homemade ice cream.
Firefighters from Hickory Volunteer Fire Department will cook and sell chicken plates with all the trimmings, hamburgers and hot dogs.
Ample parking is available downtown and organizers recommend bringing lawn chairs and umbrellas to shield yourself from the sun.
