OhioHealth 4th Friday Reaches End of Season

A beautiful early-fall night marked the end of the 2014 OhioHealth 4th Friday season on September 26th. Nearly 8,000 people strolled along Uptown streets, enjoying live music, demonstrations, food and extended shopping hours. Close to 90 vendors offered everything from hair bows to car insurance and kids were entertained by puppet shows, story times and fire trucks. Westerville City Schools showcased

The Westerville Visitors and Convention Bureau would like to extend a sincere thanks to OhioHealth for sponsoring this family friendly community events for the last four years. Special thanks also goes to the City of Westerville, the Division of Police and Fire and the Arts Council of Westerville. Hometown Service Center, AAA Ohio Auto Club the Humane Society of Delaware County and the Westerville Public Library were also instrumental in bringing this series of six events to the people of Central Ohio.

An average of 9,500 people attended the OhioHealth 4th Fridays each month. The WVCB is grateful for each and every person who attends and who helps behind the scenes. These folks include Winnie Maze and the Westerville Puppet Posse, Debbie Bennati and the Westerville Uptown Merchants Association as well as our wonderful WVCB volunteers, Rich Korn, Corben Stoughton and Rachel Stoughton. We would also like to thank our Board of Trustees including A.J. Fox, Chuck Woodson, Kathy Hendricks, Mike Moore, Cheryl Perri, and Steve Lebold for volunteering their time to help with our Kids' Corner.

The 2014 4th Friday season may be over, but we will spend the winter gearing up for next year. In the meantime, look for the November issue of Ohio Magazine. If some of the photos look familiar, that's because Westerville will be featured as one of Ohio's Best Hometowns. We wholeheartedly agree!
