Burger Bash and Bull Thistle on Weekend Agenda

(Sylvania, OH) Burger Bash takes the stage at Centennial Terrace this weekend. 

Burgers, bands and beer are the three B's this weekend in Sylvania Township. Four burger joints will spend the next two days trying to convince foodies why they're the best between a bun-- Dave and Buster's, Inside the Five Brewing, Mancy's Ideal, and Frogtown Johnnie's. The public can vote on the Best of Burger Bash. But there's also pie and ice cream for dessert-- from the Cinammon Stick and Handel's. Sylvania Rotary and Sylvania Recreation are teaming up for the two-day event to be held Friday and Saturday evening.

A celebration of a giant weed takes over a Fulton County community park tomorrow. 

The annual Bull Thistle Festival celebrates a giant purple flowering invasive species that, unchecked, can grow more than ten feet tall. In fact, there's a contest to see who can find the biggest bull thistle-- leading some to scour farm fields in search of a weed they dig up, stick in a five-gallon bucket, and bring to the park in Fayette-- all with the hope of winning a golden shovel. There will even be a Bull Thistle parade in honor of the prickly weed, along with an art-and-craft fair. 

The Bull Thistle burger will be the most popular meal in town tomorrow, some waiting up to an hour for the lunch. There also will be bluegrass alongside all the bull, thistle, that is.

A downtown Findlay tradition continues this weekend. Car Tunes on Main features classic cars of all kinds. The local Corvette Club president says the annual event raises money for the Open Arms domestic violence and rape crisis center. Last year the donation was $18,000. Food, raffles, and prizes take place 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday.

The Wood County Fair continues into the weekend at the fairgrounds in Bowling Green. Today's events include a cheerleading competition, kiddie tractor pull, and a rodeo tonight. Saturday features an open horse speed show and an evening concert by the Charlie Daniels Band. Sunday's events include a draft horse show and a demolition derby. The fair wraps up Monday.

There's a historic Celebration of Freedom planned in Sylvania tomorrow. The annual event brings together re-enactors who will portray the role the region played in the Underground Railroad. Presentations and historical games run 1 to 5 p.m. Saturday at the Lathrop House.
