Hollis Old Home Days is the town’s “biggest annual shindig” with a parade, amusement rides, silent auction, teen dance, midway games, field day games, balloon rides, music and fireworks, too!
Bake and bring your best home-cooked apple pie and enter the Apple Pie contest. You could win a First Place ribbon in your age division. Or if you aren’t a baker, just come and eat some apple pie. After the pie judging everyone can buy a slice!
Enjoy the Chicken Barbeque from 3:30pm to 7:00pm in the Barbeque Tent. The $12 ticket for adult and children entitles you to one-half of a whole BBQ chicken, potato salad, green salad, baked beans, roll, watermelon, and a cold drink. Tickets for seniors aged 65+ are only $10. Tickets for Hollis residents 90+ years old are free. You can buy tickets online here: BUY TICKETS, or at the Hollis Pharmacy. If the tickets don’t sell out before the event you can them buy at Old Home Days Tent.
