Balloons and Tunes - Hot Air Balloons at Beulah Park

Grove City holds an annual event called Balloons and Tunes at Beulah Park race track.  This is a great event where families can come and enjoy music, food and watch hot air balloons launch into the sky.  Some balloon owners even allow for tethered balloon rides for a fee.

There is a part where all the balloons are heated up at sunset.  The beautifully colored balloons glow into the night sky!

Reynoldsburg Tomato Festival

Every year for the last 45 years, Reynoldsburg Ohio has celebrated the tomato.  A man by the name of Alexander Livingston worked hard for years to cultivate and breed different types of tomatoes to make new strains that were both commercially viable and increase their overall appearance, taste and juiciness!
If you want to learn more about Livingston, check out the Livingston House Society's website.

Several visitors to the Lake Erie shores of Northern Ohio have experienced the magic of her waters.  I have often  wondered on my visits "How can I capture this and take it back home with me?"  Well, the lovely owners of Desdemona's can definitely help you with that goal. Laura and Sandee have created a perfect balance of fine art and affordable souvenirs that will appeal to everyone.
