Centennial Celebration in Gaylord

Aug. 6, 2022

The City of Gaylord is celebrating 100 years this weekend with a parade and City Hall open house. This celebration, just shy of three months after a devastating tornado leveled parts of the town, is intended to honor “100 years of community.” Saturday, Aug. 13, from 12pm to 3pm, the parade will cruise through town, ending at City Hall. There, participants can view the Gaylord Area Council for the Arts’ “Hometown” exhibit, which features the work of local artists. City officials will also be collecting memorabilia—photos, newspaper clippings, tickets to special events, etc.—for a time capsule that will be sealed up and opened again 50 years from now in 2072. Kids will get to explore the city’s public works trucks and police vehicles that will be on display at City Hall, and a farmers market and sidewalk sale will happen concurrently for hungry shoppers.
