This weekend: The Hobart Horseshoe Festival

There are some things that just go together. Ice and tea. Beans and cornbread. Hobart and horseshoes.

Back in the late 1700s, local lore tells, Hobart pioneer Foote More was the first in the nation to manufacture those square nails once used to keep the horses of America shod.

Over 200 years later, Hobart's still celebrating the humble horseshoe with an annual festival that features a horseshoe tournament, a duck race on the Delaware River, antique farm equipment, a petting zoo, and fair food galore. After dark on Saturday, the Stamford Fire Department will set off fireworks at the nearby Cyr Center in Stamford.

Hobart Horseshoe Festival, Saturday, July 23, 10am - 4pm. Hobart Community Center Park, Hobart, Delaware County. Fireworks after dark, Frank W. Cyr Center, 159 West Main Street, Stamford.
