One of the great treasures of Northwest Ohio is the community festivals and fairs. You can easily find something to do every weekend throughout the summer. I'll put in a little plug for Holland's Strawberry Festival which begins this coming week and runs through next weekend--Homecoming Park on Angola in Holland. Rides, games and most importantly....STRAWBERRIES!

The Holland Strawberry Festival has long been a favorite of ours...

Perhaps I should see if I can do a 'festival schedule' that lists all the area fairs, festivals and summer events...unless someone already knows of one I could link to...
