Road Trip – May 2021

We may be moving a bit closer to enjoying popcorn and funnel cakes on the midway. In March, Governor Mike DeWine announced that decreasing COVID numbers mean that the state anticipates that summer fairs will be permitted to operate this year. If all goes as planned, the first county fairs will be held in June. The big one, though, is the Ohio State Fair, still scheduled to take place in Columbus on July 28 through August 8. Official word on tickets and events has not been released as of press time. For the latest information, visit

America’s Rollercoast prepares for season
Although they were open in a limited capacity in 2020, many families didn’t get to make a trip to Sandusky to visit Cedar Point. The park will open for the 2021 season on May 14, kicking off a summer of events including the delayed-continuation of Cedar Point’s 150th anniversary celebrations. Anyone who bought a season pass for 2020 should hold onto it, as those passes are being accepted for the 2021 season. Guests who visit the park will also have an opportunity to win a “Ticket of a Lifetime,” earning free admission to Cedar Point for the rest of their lives. 1 Cedar Point Dr., Sandusky. 419-627-2350.
