Holmes County, Ohio Event: Berlin Harvest Festival Parade & Rib Cook-off, September 7, 2013

As autumn begins in Holmes County, Ohio so do all the fun fall festivities, taking place only a short distance from The Barn Inn Bed and Breakfast. Kicking off the Fall season this year will be The Seventh Annual Berlin Harvest Festival Parade and Rib Cook-off, taking place this weekend; September 7, 2013.

Fun the whole family can enjoy!

Along Main Street in Berlin there will be numerous rib vendors set up for the annual rib cook-off, where you can buy a whole rack or get a small sample at each vendor, and vote for your favorite so a winner can be crowned. The cook-off features entrepreneurs from as far away as Columbus to compete for the prizes. In addition, there will be vendors selling kettle corn, homemade ice-cream, fry pies, and noodles.

 Plenty of demonstrations and fun activities for the kids will be taking place Saturday as well, such as giant inflatable jumping pits, face painting, an animal petting zoo, and much more along with live musical performances on the Stage at the Square, and many sales will be taking place throughout town. Ending the day will be the Harvest Fest Parade that starts on 62 near Nature's Food Market and travels along Main Street  to the Berlin Elementary School, where local businesses and organizations take to Main Street in a long line up of floats, fire trucks, automobiles, tractors, and pretty much anything that rolls on wheels.
