From: Destination Mansfield – Richland County

Summer is here, and while our summers may be looking a little different this year, there are events for everyone’s comfort level on our calendar. Thousands and thousands of visitors make road trips to our area each year, but many visitors are staying close to home this year. This could be the best summer to explore like a visitor in your own backyard since our attractions, restaurants, and stores need local support more than ever. These events are a great way to fill your summer with fun and help our local businesses thrive again. More…

Start Your Fourth Early And Close To Home

24 Jun , 2018  

The Sixteenth Annual Ontario 4th of July Festival gives locals a chance to jump start their Indepedence Day celebrations in grand style. This year’s event takes place this Saturday, June 30.

According to the organizer’s website, “Since our beginning in 1969, the Ontario 4th of July festival has aimed to represent “Fun for All Ages”.  After some period of time, the festival stopped due to absence of funding and insurance. In 2002 a small, non-profit committee of volunteers saw the need for the re-birth of our yearly, community event.  This new festival committee breathed new life into the Ontario Fourth of July Festival in 2002.” More…
