And Vermilion Fish Festivalyes, there will be lots of food!

The Vermilion Fish Festival is 52 years old and is still one of the most popular festivals in Ohio. The theme this year is STAR WARS: “May the FISH be with you!” Since Vermilion is located right on Lake Erie most events center around the Lake.There is  the Lighted Boat Parade and the Antique Boat Parade, the Crazy Craft race, the sand castle building contest, the pageants, the Father’s Day parade, and, of course, the FOOD! And don’t forget the fireworks over the lake.

The Weekend

Since both festivals are happening on the same weekend why not make this a staycation weekend. With Avon located on the northeast corner and Vermilion on the Northwest corner of Lorain County you will find Oberlin located just about in the middle. And Hallauer House B & B with it’s in-ground heated pool is the perfect place to stay the weekend. Explore the festivals and come to Hallauer House to relax at the pool, stay the night, and enjoy a free breakfast. Return to the festivals or check out other attractions in the area. Lots to do and see so
