Huntington’s Pioneer Days

Huntington is expecting thousands of visitors for the eclipse weekend, and the community is welcoming the crowds with Pioneer Days. The weekend, from Friday through Sunday, includes a “wet and wild” kids park, library activities, a “balloon guy” and a magician.

The Chamber of Commerce will have a cook shack open all weekend with a daily menu (corn dogs, watermelon, smoked turkey legs, popcorn, snow cones, drinks and more), as well as special meals. These include biscuits and gravy on Saturday ($6), Saturday dinner from 5-8 p.m. featuring tri-tip with baked potato and corn on the cob ($12) or smoked turkey legs with sides ($10), pancakes on Sunday morning ($6) and breakfast burritos on Monday ($6).
