Hobo dinner returns to village

Published: July 19, 2017 12:00 AM

Remember the Newcomerstown Historical Society's hobo dinner last year? Well, they're doing it again!

The hobo dinner will be Saturday, July 29, with "Just Bummin' Around," an evening celebrating the hobo.

The program will feature Professor Joe the Hobo, as played by Chris Hart. Dinner will be a traditional hobo dinner. Here's how it works: you choose whether you want one or two hamburgers, and which of many choices of vegetables you would like. Would you also like some mushroom soup on it? Well, all righty, then!

Our workers wrap it in foil, and send it out back to the cooks at the fire, who will cook it until it is just perfect.

While waiting for dinner, Professor Joe the Hobo will entertain with his stories of hobo life.

Participants are encouraged to be dressed hobo style.

For tickets, call 1-740-498-7735 during the Main Street Gift Shop hours, which are Thursdays through Saturdays from 11 a.m. till 4 p.m. and Sundays from 1-4 p.m. Tickets are $15, and the last day to order is July 27.
