Oglebayfest, Fair Usher in Autumn

Here and there on still-green lawns, a few yellow and orange leaves can be seen this week. Temperatures, while still warm, have begun to dip. Even the breezes feel less like summer and more like fall.

It won’t be long before leaving the house will call for a jacket. Weekend recreational activities will shift from outdoors to interior spaces.

It’s time, then, for one last good time in the fresh air before hunkering down for chillier autumn weather.

Just the thing is on tap this weekend at Oglebay Park. The annual Oglebayfest/Ohio County Country Fair celebration is slated for Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

As usual, a wide variety of activities appealing to those of all ages is planned. Mother Nature is cooperating, with Saturday and Sunday forecast to be sunny and mild.

Try a little Oglebayfest this weekend, then, before you have to begin worrying about raking leaves.
