Kewanee Back When Another Look at the History of Kewanee Hog Days

When did Hog Days actually begin? Did Geneseo try to steal Hog Days? Who was the politician that managed to land Kewanee the title of “The Hog Capital of the World.” Dave Clark has answers for all of these questions in our newest edition of Kewanee Back When. Dave looks back at memorable stories, the multiple origins of Hog Days and when the Labor Day tradition actually became a Labor Day tradition in Kewanee. Kewanee Back When airs on the third Wednesday of the month every month on WKEI.
