Description of Homecoming Celebration Activities:
California's historic town of Copperopolis turned 150 years old in 2010. We in Copper continue celebrate our unique little town with our annual Homecoming Celebration and want to invite everyone who loves small town charm to join us. Copperopolis' Homecoming was started by our founding families for an annual get together. Now everyone is welcome for a celebration fitting a town that saw Black Bart's first and last stage coach robbery, hosted Mark Twain at a town social and has one of America's only family owned Telephone Companies. The traditional pancake breakfast will be the first event of the day held in the Armory. Vendors will be selling their wares in the Armory and on Main Street. Our "Locally World Famous" Homecoming Parade will feature an array of colorful characters, gunfighters, saddle queens, citizens, politicians and animals both tame and wild. Family fun, BBQ and Parade Awards will follow at Copper Fire Station 1. Live music will fill the air and throughout the day at the Historic Armory, Copper Fire Station 1 and at the old fashioned evening street dance at the Copperopolis Town Square.
