Special events with local flavor worth seeing

Living in the Mid-Ohio Valley has its advantages, especially fairs and festivals our communities hold each year.

Take your pick from the Belpre Heritage Festival, Lowell’s Octoberfest, Barlow Fair, Beverly-Waterford Homecoming and the Washington County Fair. There are plenty of events to enjoy throughout the calendar with friends and family. We hope you got to enjoy at least one of these events. If not, you really missed out and we hope you’ll make a point of having some fun next year.

They are a great place to see old friends and savor the food and atmosphere of our Valley. The best thing about our festivals is that local people are in charge and take intense pride in what they share with visitors to their neighborhoods. You might even consider getting involved in one of these special events.

We’re sure you will see some familiar faces no matter where you go and when you go there.
