If you like festivals, you'll love our Pioneer Day Celebration held each year on the third Saturday in August...
On Saturday, August 17, 2013, Pioneer Tunnel will hold its annual "Pioneer Day" in celebration this year of its 51st anniversary. Many people look forward to Pioneer Day which is reminiscent of an old-fashioned community festival. In addition to the regularly scheduled coal mine tours and steam train rides, many special events are planned and held in Higher-Ups Park. A large craft fair with over 80 vendors will be selling beautiful homemade crafts throughout the park. In addition, there will be live music on the bandstand, an open-pit chicken barbeque, and entertainment for kids. Food is one of the main attractions and is sold in the park pavilion and under a large tent. Some of the delicious foods sold are of regional ethnic origins. Bleenies, pierogies, and haluskie are favorites. Bean soup, meatball and sausage sandwiches, french fries, homemade ice cream and soft pretzels are some of the many foods that are also sold in the park.
There is plenty of free parking at Pioneer Tunnel, and Pioneer Day is an event that is fun for people of all ages. The event runs from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM.
