Leechburg Kennywood Day May 15th

Funny thing happened today on my way to work. I saw a sign that was announcing Leechburg Kennywood Day. I found this to be quite strange seeing that Leechburg Kennywood day should not be for another three months. Upon closer inspection I found that it was announcing it for May 15th, not the traditional August 15th.

Leechburg always held their Kennywood Day in August in sync with the Fall Fantasy Parades. The band went down as a group and marched and played in the parade. Usually 6 or more schools would come down at one time.

So, in conclusion, I do not know why they are holding it on May 15th instead of August 15th. I'm going to have to find out. It might have something to do with the chorus trip.
