Festival Weekend: July 27-30, 2017

Good Morning, Festival fans!

There are over 50 festivals in Ohio, over 30 in Michigan and more in the other neighboring states.

Among visited Ohio festivals, I would definitely check out the Celina Lake Festival, The Gathering at Garst in Greenville, the Annie Oakley Festival in Ansonia (near Greenville), The Summer Market in Avon, Canal Winchester Blues and Ribsfest, and Streetboro Family Days. You can read the reviews below.

Concerning festivals that I have not visited but would love to attend, there are two this weekend – The Ohio River Ferryboat Festival in Fly, Ohio (which connects to a second festival in Sistersville, WV by means of the said ferryboat!) is the first.  I just love the idea of 2 festivals connected across state lines and a river.  The second festival is the Kent Potterfest where the city celebrates all things Harry Potter.  This is the second year for this festival (actually, it may be the second year for the Ferryboat Festival as well, although the ferry service used has been operating for 200 years now).

And if I was able to travel out of state this weekend, these are the festivals I would make some time for…

Indiana: Pierogi Fest (Whiting), Swiss Days (Berne)
Kentucky: Snappin’ Chaplin Turtle Derby (Perryville)
Michigan: Yale Bologna Festival, Grand Haven Coast Guard Festival
Pennsylvania: Rain Day Festival (Waynesburg), St. Mary’s Ukie Fest (McKees Rocks)
West VirginiaOhio River Ferryboat Festival (Sistersville – but connects with Fly, Ohio), The West Virginia Hot Dog Festival (Huntington)

Have a great weekend, everyone, and feel free to write to me if you have any questions.

Love, Peace and Festival Grease!

Kristian
