2013 was the 137th Ione Homecoming Parade in Ione, California. It began as a reunion between the folks of Ione and the settlers from outside of town forced to either purchase their lands a second time or move away after the lands of the Rancho Arroyo Seco land grant were confirmed as legitimate by President Abe Lincoln in the early 1860s.

The first gathering was on Shakeley Hill west of town and eventually moved to the current Howard Park where the picnics continue to today.more »
