This year’s Monona Hay Days, held Friday and Saturday, June 19 and 20, will look to “welcome home” attendees. The theme ties into the celebration in several ways, shared Monona Chamber and Economic Development Executive Director Rogeta Halvorson, who’s worked with the committee organizing the event.
“It’s a welcome home back to downtown, to veterans and to classes and alumni,” she explained.
In the past, Halvorson said, Hay Days was held downtown, but, in later years, moved to the city park. The committee initially considered holding events in both areas, but settled on downtown to keep activities centralized and allow for more space.
