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 their
students, staff and the new technology-filled Fab Lab.
The Westerville Visitors and Convention
Bureau would like to extend a sincere thanks to
OhioHealth for sponsoring these 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,

The 2014 4th Friday season may be over,
but we will spend the winter gearing up for next year.

Best Hometowns. We wholeheartedly agree!
