Holiday at Home Festival Attracts Thousands & Some Superheroes

KETTERING -- It's a tradition that's been going on since 1959.

"Ever since I was in second grade, I marched the parade and now I'm watching it," said Kettering parent Amy Woody.

But for some people, this was their first time.

"We've lived in Kettering for 15 years and this is our first parade," said Kettering parent Melissa Moody.

"We were just nearby doing some shopping and we accidentally ran into this parade and decided to stop by," said Fairborn parent Walter Pico.

Every Labor Day in Kettering is a Holiday at Home juggling between a 5K run, a parade, arts and crafts and car show.

"I like the arts and crafts, that's like my favorite," said Woody.

Holiday at Home attracts more than 100,000 folks, including Batman and a guy who tells a lot of jokes.

While the caped crusader takes down his arch rival, karaoke singers give old songs revivals.

Choose from more than 30 vendors for what you want to eat, but a snow cone in the water is the best way to beat the heat.

So let the kids race and let the music play, because in Kettering they always ride tall on Labor Day.

"It's just a tradition here in Kettering," said Moody.
