5 To-do’s in Wayne County

Five things to do in Wayne County this summer:

Shop and stroll downtown Wooster with a Dora Drink.

Did you know you can shop and sip downtown Wooster with the designated outdoor refreshment area? All you have to do is stop in a restaurant or bar and pick up your favorite drink in a dora cup! When shopping, some stores don’t allow drinks inside, so look for the door signs to see if your drink is welcome. Visit www.mainstreetwooster.org/dora for times, participating restaurants, boundaries, and more.

Attend an Ohio Light Opera Performance.

If you haven’t seen an Ohio Light Opera performance, now is the time! OLO runs between June and July with six shows for you to enjoy. Shows include “No No Nanette,” “H.M.S Pinafore,” “Arizona Lady,” “Camelot,” and “Orpheus in the Underworld.” Buy your tickets online at ohiolightopera.org, book a hotel, make an overnight stay out of it, and enjoy everything Wayne County has to offer!

Fire in the Sky in Orrville

Head over to Orrville and watch the largest single-aged softball tournament in the county and the 20th annual Fire in the Sky carnival! This event is fun for all ages. Kick-off ‘Fire in the Sky’ with a 4th of July parade full of candy tossing and excitement. Enjoy watching the softball games over at the diamonds, or head over to the carnival and play a few games, ride some rides, and enjoy some delicious carnival food! Once the evening is winding down on the last day, find your spot for the Fireworks to cap off your 4th of July!

Farmer’s Market

What could be better than a Saturday at the farmer’s market? Can’t think of anything! Visit downtown and shop at multiple vendors selling locally-grown produce and other locally-made goods! Grab a bouquet of flowers, some fresh bread, jams, jellies, and more. The farmer’s market is always a fun stop on Saturday mornings, and the best part is that each Saturday is a little different, making it a great weekly shopping spot! www.mainstreetwooster.org/farmers-market

Get Outside

Wayne County has 25+ walking paths, preserves, parks, and trails. Grab your family or some friends and get outside in nature! Stroll along the paths and see what new plants, bugs, and animals you can spot while reconnecting with nature. Once you’re out on the paths, take in all the beautiful sights while hearing the sounds of creeks running, birds chirping, and leaves rustling. Getting outside is free and fun for all ages. Create a scavenger hunt before leaving and see what you can find! Pack a picnic, enjoy a nice sunny day, take a few photos, and breathe in the fresh summer air. www.wccvb.com/listings/outdoors
