Holiday at Home Celebrates 30 years

Kettering Holiday at Home Parade Celebrates 30 Years of Television on MVCC

The Labor Day event, which began in 1959, MVCC started broadcasting the parade in 1992

On Monday, September 5th at 10:00am, there’s only one channel you will need to turn to for the best sights and sounds of community spirit and excitement: GATV Channel 6. That’s because the Miami Valley Communications Council (MVCC) will be broadcasting the City of Kettering’s Holiday at Home parade for its 30th year, rain or shine.

Community groups, public safety staff and vehicles, marching bands, and school teams – all that and more will participate in the approximately 90-minute event, which will be both live on the channel and streaming live at This year’s theme will be “Dog Days of Summer.”

This broadcast is made possible in part by the generous contributions of many MVCC volunteers who help in all aspects of the video production. Volunteers set up equipment, operate cameras, manage audio, and will even direct the parade.

Community parades are an integral part of MVCC’s broadcasting history. This year, in addition to Kettering’s 30th year on air, Centerville’s parade aired its 37th year, Miamisburg recorded its 30th year, Oakwood its 29th, and the City of Springboro will celebrate 30 years in November.
