Poolesville Day 2019: Poolesville High School’s Chesapeake Bay Coalition Students prepare to march in the Poolesville Day Parade.

On Saturday, Sep. 18, Poolesville will be hosting its 29th annual Poolesville Day. Poolesville Day was canceled last year due to COVID-19, but now it will be back on, with a myriad of entertainers and activities, including a Poolesville High School (PHS) teacher dunk tank, and musical and dance performances from both PHS and John Poole Middle School (JPMS). Due to COVID-19, some changes have been made to ensure safety, including the removal of the normal “bouncy houses;” the use of hand sanitizer after rides; the inclusion of stations with masks, wipes, and hand sanitizer; the implementation of extra space around vendor tables; and the strong recommendation of masks. The event starts at 8:00 a.m. with the Poolesville Day 5k, and the annual Parade follows two hours later at 10:00 a.m. The event is open to everyone of all ages; visit the Poolesville Day Website for more details.
