Worthington Arts Festival
Here at Able Roof we pride ourselves for being a part of the community. We love to show our support by attending local events. In fact, just this past weekend we were at the 24th annual Worthington Arts Festival. I sincerely hope you made it out, but if you didn’t, check out these highlights.
The festival started on Saturday, June 18th and wrapped up this past Sunday, June 19th. It was a juried show that featured more than 150 select artists and craftspeople from across the U.S. There were crafts, paintings, sculptures, photography, mixed media, and more. Did you see Aaron Buccholz and his glass art? Or the paintings by Zhen Zhong Duan? Or maybe your heart is in photography. There were some beautiful photos by Rick Braveheart.
Every year this festival seems to get a little bigger and a little better. This year the festival concluded with a live performance on the lawn of the McConnell Arts Center. They even sold picnic dinners with a side salad, entre, side dish, desert, and your choice of wine. Can anything beat live music and food? It made for a perfect summer evening in Worthington Ohio.
London Strawberry Festival
If you missed the Worthington Arts Festival you have to check out this years’ London Strawberry Festival. It will begin this Thursday, June 23rd, and will end on Saturday, June 25th, in London Ohio.
This year we have two Grand Marshals, Reverend Gordon Johnson and Ruthann Johnson, and they will be leading the Parade on Saturday. In the parade there will be a variety of colorful, creative floats, and a lot of them will be taking part in one contest or another. To name a few, there will be a best queens float, a wagon decorating contest, pet contest, strawberry theme contest, and more.
This festival has it all, a 5K, car and motorcycle show, poetry, karaoke, and a ton of vendors. The festival is designed to appeal to all ages, so there will be something for everyone. My personal favorites are all of the eating contests. Needless to say this festival will be amazing, so make sure you take some time out of your busy summer and enjoy all the local festivities.
