The Old West End Festival! Summer Really Is Here!

The Truth Staff

Somehow, it really doesn’t seem like summer has arrived in Toledo until the Old West End Parade and Festival get underway. The good news, for fans of summer, is that the gloriously warm season is now here. The Old West End Parade and Festival introduced our favorite season last weekend!

Dozens of parade participants: schools – residents, corvettes, elected officials, companies, non-profit agencies –clothed themselves in some of the most improbable costumes and finery and hailed hundreds of onlookers along the Bancroft/Collingwood route on Saturday morning.

Then dozens of vendors and artists set up stands on Saturday and Sunday for the first big summer festival which spread across several blocks of the Old West End and within view of the Toledo Museum of Art.

Summer is here and the festivals are underway!
