Art, crafts, music, food, and special areas just for kids and dogs; what’s not to love about the Maumee Summer Fair? Festivities kick off on Friday night with Taste of Maumee, where you can stroll past booths manned by local restaurants selling fare ranging from a small taste to a full meal. Taste continues a through Saturday. Other attractions include the Kids Zone, with plenty of games and activities, and live music from bands like Venyx and 80’s-inspired, Reaganomics. A huge variety of local vendors will have booths with info and giveaways, and you can feast your eyes on art and crafts as well.
On Saturday, the 3rd annual Bow-wow Bash provides “all kinds of dog-gone fun,” including a variety of contests, goody bags for dogs and owners, and baby pools so your pooch can chill out in the hot summer sun. And don’t miss the parade, at 10 AM, led by the Maumee High School marching band, and featuring dance groups, classic cars, wild imaginative floats, singers, pets and costumed children on bikes. The fair is sponsored by the Maumee Uptown Business Association.
