It’s Independence Day Weekend!

Plenty of firework fests to help you celebrate the 4th of July among all our listed states!

**********************************************

 

THIS WEEKEND’S Festivals, Craft Shows, Expos, & Bazaars:

This weekend, we extend into Monday because of July 4.

There are nearly 60 fests in Ohio and a good portion of these festivals are Independence Day related…whether as a fireworks festival, a freedom festival or a July 4th festival.

Please keep in mind that festivals listed must have food, non-food vendors and entertainment.  I simply don’t list for fireworks shows and/or parades.  To me, that’s just entertainment.

BUT, with that being said, if you know of fests this weekend that have those requirements and aren’t listed, please let me know and I can add them.

**********************************************

I don’t have that many reviews for this weekend, but I did go to the Doo Dah Parade in Columbus last year and loved it!  The festival aspect is small but the parade and post-parade activities are worth checking out.

Seriously, it’s a fantastic parade (read the review listed below).

Let me know what festivals you recommend and I’ll try to visit them.  I may try to go to Bay Days in Bay Village.

Have a great weekend and be safe!
