Sylvania Festival expands to two days
The celebration was just too big for one day. The 35th annual Sylvania Fall Festival has been expanded to two days, Saturday, October 16 and Sunday, October 17.  A draw since 1985, this year’s festival will feature a Nite Lite Farmers’ Market on Saturday, complete with live music and a cornhole tournament. On Sunday, the traditional parade, plenty of craft and farmers’ market vendors, trick or treating stops for the kids and more fill the bill. 4-10pm, Saturday; 10am-4pm, Sunday.
