We'll roll out easy about 10 mph south through Akron to the Robinson Avenue Magic Mile connector into downtown Barberton to attend their annual mum fest. We'll enjoy the festival for an agreed upon time. Usually an hour or long enough to enjoy the ski boat show. Or, we can head back as we please. If you want lunch there, there will be a variety of food vendors.

Mums the Word: Lake Anna Park will explode with color as 17,000 chrysanthemums create over a million mum blooms in a rainbow of color at the twenty seventh annual MUM FEST 2018 on Saturday and Sunday, September 29th and 30th.

The dazzling floral display will provide a brilliant backdrop for a weekend filled with FREE family entertainment, arts and crafts, gardening tips, and fabulous foods.
