Homecomers is one of the longest traditions in Cape Girardeau County. Jackson's annual festival began in 1908 when people gathered to celebrate the completion of the county courthouse.
New to the celebration this year is a multimedia display created by the Jackson Community Outreach Board. The event will also have its more traditional food, rides and entertainment as well.
Homecomers kicks off July 24 with the mayor's welcome at 6:30, along with Jackson's municipal band. The festival continues through July 28.
Homecomers is an event for the young and old alike. We hope you make plans to attend this year. A list of Homecomers events can be found at semoevents.com.
