July 7, 1866 the town of New Haven was incorporated. That makes this year our Sesquicentennial (say that three times fast) in other words we are 150 years old. To help celebrate this historical mile marker, last week on Thursday, July 7, 2016 a birthday party was held in Schnelker Park.
The celebration like many other birthday parties had food which consisted of hotdogs and chips provided by the Parks and Recreation Department and cook on sight by Andy's Knockout Chicken. There was also birthday cake happily donated by the New Haven Bakery, Calls Commissary Restaurant, and New Haven's Kroger Store.
This year New Haven will be celebrating its 150th birthday. The sesquicentennial celebration will be a year long series of events happening during the New Haven Canal Days Festival, the July 4th Holiday weekend, New Haven High School Homecoming and wrapping up in the end of the year.
