It’s not often that I find a festival with a strong Amish influence, even when located in Amish-populated areas. Continue reading
Once upon a time, there was a stay-at-home mom named Karen who loved finding uses for items considered trash by others. She had a passion for nabbing these items off the curbs of people’s homes, working on them and eventually reselling them in consignment and resale shops.
Fortunately, this was something she was really good at and it helped make ends meet for her and her family when the economy sank at the end of 2008.

Although it’s been a while since I’ve been to a festival (I’m in withdrawal), I’m still doing plenty of planning for this summer, looking at sites and checking out both festival and non-festival possibilities.
While doing this, I figured I should share two sites with you that may be helpful.
The first is via a Facebook page called “1000 Things to do with your kids in Stark & surrounding counties,” hosted by the creator of the website Hall of Fame Moms.
Just yesterday, she posted an Ohio Family-fun Summer Survival Guide, which you should be able to access by clicking the above photo and clicking on that photo again on her facebook page.
(You may have to “Like” her page first).
The other site is a great NE Ohio resource for events, activities, freebies, summer camp and more…
…and it’s called Find Time for Fun.
She even has a cool Event Calendar, which you can find HERE.
So there you go, peeps! Two more sites to check out to help with your summer planning needs.
While you’re busy with that, I’ll be preparing to attend some festivals that I can write about for you, while announcing upcoming festivals along the way.
…love, peace and funnel cake grease!
