Atascadero celebrates its colorful and rich history as the first planned community in the West at the Colony Days celebration this coming weekend. ‘Tent City’ from which Atascadero sprung is erected with an ice cream parlor, barber shop, land office and residents really get the feeling of bygone times by dressing in period costume and cruising the authentic old town. The Historical Society Museum has tours and displays plus the extensive photographic collection showing early Atascadero and landmarks still here today. Festivities include the hometown parade, complete with kids on bikes and family pets……..a true slice of small town Americana! Then there is the Battle of Marching Bands at the High School and if you have never seen something like this, it really is a fun event. Come to hear long time residents reminisce, view history or to imagine yourself as a pioneer…..this is one special event!
