Poster for Golden Jubilee Happy Days Celebration

Description

Black and white image of an advertisement for the Golden Jubilee of the Hillsboro Happy Days celebration on July 3, 4, and 5. While there is no certain date for the founding of the 'Happy Days' celebration, large and well-attended Fourth of July celebrations have been a part of Hillsboro's history since the towns early years. Most likely, the 'Happy Days' name was given to the celebration in the 1890s, setting this image, with its patriotic symbols, in the 1940s.
