(Port Clinton, OH) Most of the winter festivals in Northwest Ohio have been met with mild weather. But that won't matter at this year's third edition of the Burning Snowman festival in Port Clinton.
Fans will make an ash of a 30-by-10 foot snowman named Harold tomorrow evening at Dock's Beach House. There will be live music, swimming, corn hole, and raffles all day leading up to the torching of the giant snowman at 7 p.m. The whole thing raises money for children's charities in Ottawa County.
Organizers expect this year's festival to be its biggest, after the fiery demise of Norman in 2015 and Charlie last year. About 5,000 people attended 2016's festival.
