Patriotism Warms The Chill

12 Nov , 2019  

FROM 1812: As Mansfield’s Veterans Day Parade was canceled for the second year in a row due to low temperatures, we thought we’d re-post our coverage from the 2017 Parade along Park Avenue West, including photos and video.

The number of onlookers may have been substantially less than the previous year, fueled by the 28 degree temperature, but the patriotic enthusiasm was the same as the 2017 Veterans Day Parade took place Saturday morning in downtown Mansfield. More…

Halloween Trick-Or-Treating And Parade Round-Up

14 Oct , 2019  

Locally, trick-or-treating does not always take place on October 31. In fact, each location in Richland County designates not only the day, but the hours for trick-or-treating.

Photos Of A Cold, Blustery, And Wonderful Holiday Parade

19 Nov , 2016  

UPDATED at 3:07 p.m. with video

In contrast to two other downtown parades in the last handful of weeks, onlookers for the 2016 Holiday Parade arrived on the parade route at the last possible moment. Minutes before, many were huddled in their cars — music playing, hot chocolate guzzling, and excitement building.

It was a cold and blustery early winter morning on Saturday for the annual event.
