WEATHER UPDATE URGENT UPDATE RAIN DATE IS NOW IN EFFECT

Come enjoy the fresh autumn air at the 41st annual Yankee Peddler Festival, a step back in time 200 years. Vendors and performers in costume, including cloggers who invite children up on stage and a wandering bagpiper. Beer and wine in the contemporary section.

*Follow the trails through the woods and see arts and crafts for purchase in rustic shops.

*Stomp across the covered bridge to scare away the troll.

*See the antique covered wagons.

*Visit with the militia in authentic costumes. 

*Check out the Ohio spinners and weavers.

*Visit the booth of a Scottish weaver who travels to the States once a year just for this festival.

*Face painting and a butterfly house charm the young and young-at-heart. Plenty of old fashioned, handmade toys, too.

*The marionette and puppet shows have adults and children laughing--much like early cartoons---humor that makes children giggle and asides that go over their heads but tickle the grownups.

*There's a wandering magician and plenty of folk music. A musician in native American costume plays violin.

*Hearty Bill of Fare: Enjoy a wide range of foods and snacks cooked over open fires. Roasted meats, corn on the cob, soups and stews, biscuits with gravy, turkey legs, and more.

*Vegetarians might like the batter-dipped fried vegetables, Mexican pizza or rice with lentils, dried cranberries and almonds, topped with cooked vegetables and lettuce, tomato and onion with a cucumber dressing.

*For a sweet tooth, try the apple dumplings, kettle corn, Amish pie, fudge, chocolate-covered pretzels, donuts, and peanut brittle, or take some home with you.

*Non-stop entertainment across the 75-acre grounds with plenty of benches and picnic tables throughout.

    Woke up to rain and found an hourly forecast for the day. It looks like the area will have rain at least until 1 p.m. and then it should clear. But tomorrow, no rain. No rain sounds better, doesn't it? I would like to move the meetup date to Sunday to avoid the rain. If changing to Sunday means you CANNOT make it, please let me know and I will reconsider. Otherwise, let's invoke the rain date and appease the rain gods.

      Sorry to hear that. I don't think I will make it Sunday.

    Looks like we're going to have rain but only half an inch. That doesn't sound too bad, does it? Bring a folding umbrella or hooded jacket. Some of the booths have roofs and the pavilion with the beer and wine is also under roof, so if it gets bad, that's the place to go. Still planning to keep the meetup as posted on Saturday because I'd hate to change it now and miss reaching anyone. All right with everyone?

    I'm a late entry; my schedule will allow it. My daughter would like to meet some like minded people as well, so I'll bring her along.

      Great, Jerry! Glad you and your daughter can make it.

    Weather Update: No change in meetup date at this time, but Saturday looks like it's going to be 66F with a 70% chance of rain. If it's raining hard, it's muddy and miserable. Sunday is looking like partly cloudy, 62F and only a 10% chance of rain. Stay posted for a last minute update on Friday night or early Saturday morning (before 9 a.m.) in case we need to go with our rain date and move the event to Sunday.

      If there is a last minute change you'd better call me. After I leave the library shortly I will not see a computer until Monday, at the earliest.

    Meetup Times: The park opens at 10:30 a.m. and closes at 6 p.m. Please don't feel constrained by that. You can arrive later or leave earlier, at your convenience. We'll be meeting inside the park, once at 11 a.m. and again at 2:30 pm. Just catch up with us then.

    Just looked it up and it's only 31 minutes from my house. Are we meeting up somewhere on the grounds? At any particular time? Do we have to arrive at any particular time?

    This is south of Routes 277, 224 and 619, which are near Akron. Since I'm between Akron and this more southern location, to get to Clay's Park, I take 93 South (also called Manchester Ave NW) through scenic Canal Fulton, pass the entrance to Route 21, then turn left where directed into the large field for parking. This entrance takes you to Gate 3. There is no charge for parking.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
