Between speakers, guests are encouraged to roam The Bank and examine the various displays of prints and artifacts, maps and artwork and a special display donated by Allen J. Fair on the Fox Hill Farm horse, Havre de Grace. Several silent auction items will include horse racing items.
In celebration of the nostalgic decades between 1912 and 1950, the memorable "Graw Racetrack" is used as a backdrop for everything. The Graw Days Festival commemorates the 100th anniversary of the track and the tremendous impact it had on the community. The festival brings that time back to life through a wide variety of offerings. In addition to all things horse racing, there will also be an antique car show with cars from the Graw period, historical entertainment at the Old Opera House presented by Tidewater Players featuring such "stars" as W. C. Fields and Mae West.
At the other end of the festival will be the "Little Rascals Roundup," which is a transformed Congress Avenue with carnival games, bounce houses, period games and crafts, plus the Little Rascals Stage where children (and teens) will be performing for children with performances every half hour. At this corner, visitors will also find small fee pony rides and carriage rides.
There will also be Historic Walking Tours throughout the day as well as Haunted History Ghost Tours when the evening arrives. Additionally, tours of the original Graw Racetrack will take place on the half hour beginning at 11 a.m. Tickets and more information on these tours can be attained at information booths throughout the downtown area the day of the festival.
The newest addition to the Graw Days Festival is the evening event called Graw Days @ Nite. The food tables will pushed to the sidewalks as guests continue to enjoy the food and drinks while dancing on the street to the band, Higher Hands.
