Tomorrow starts the 17th year of the Heart of Ohio USA Days Festival in Centerburg. This is a great family, fun-filled event running through Saturday.

Here’s the link to the USA Days Festival website.

What about parking? It’s available at the Centerburg High School just west of town. Free school bus shuttles will be offered on Friday evening and all-day Saturday from after the parade till after the fireworks. Handicapped parking will be available in the park as well as for vendors and entertainers. Anyone who wishes may find alternate parking in town and use the sidewalk or trail to walk to the park from there.

There is motorcycle parking available in the lot near the water tower, right across from the park entrance. Only motorcycles are allowed to use this lot!
