Ohio Tobacco Festival Continues Despite Changes

This year's Ohio Tobacco Festival in Ripley Ohio (this weekend) should be interesting. Because the Farmer's Tobacco Warehouse isn't available and also because Front Street is mostly closed because they are currently constructing a riverwalk, some things have had to be moved around. Despite these changes, however, the festival coordinators expect it to be the largest one yet. It is, after all, a quarter of a century old. This year marks the 25th Anniversary of the Ohio Tobacco Festival.

From the Press Release:

Come to the historic river town of Ripley, Ohio, to celebrate the Ohio Tobacco Festival, featuring three big parades, antique car show, outdoor flea market, indoor craft show and commercial exhibits plus over 40 delicious food booths. Don't miss the queen pageant, tobacco show, tobacco worm race, talent show, arm wrestling competition, corn hole tournament, cheerleading competition and Sunday prayer breakfast. There are many more contests and free entertainment for the entire family. For information contact Ohio Tobacco Festival, Inc., P.O. Box 91, Ripley, OH 45167 Phone: 937-392-1590 or 937-373-3651
