I can't believe I will not be in town to participate in Porterville's Sesquicentennial Celebration. It's okay if you can't pronounce sesquicentennial, just say: Porterville's 150th Birthday.
The Pioneer Days Celebration will take place on Saturday, June 25, 2011 from 4-10pm at Centennial Park (next to Hoagie's on Main Street). It sounds like there will be a lot to see and would be worth checking out. There will be people in western attire, horse drawn vehicle rides, reenactments, and live music.
Prepare for the celebration by reading an interesting article on the history of Porterville. Test your knowledge of Porterville with a short quiz.
