Sidney Ohio is the Place to Be
Only a short drive from almost everywhere in Ohio, Sidney and the surrounding area offers an incredible variety of fun things to do close to home. Outdoor concerts, festivals, and recreation of all varieties await you in west central Ohio.
A truly special place just outside of Sidney is the Lake Loramie State Park. With its 1,600 acre lake and 30 miles of shoreline, Lake Loramie is one of the original feeder lakes for the Miami-Erie Canal and offers visitors a quiet retreat in rural Ohio. Swim from a sandy beach, hike along the old canal towpath, wet a line from the lakeshore or a rented boat, and spend the night in a shaded campsite or cabin. However you like to unwind, Lake Loramie State Park is the perfect destination to recharge your battery in the great outdoors. Featured at the park during the weekend is the annual Fall Harvest Festival. Your family is sure to enjoy the antique power show, kids games & activities, craft exhibitors, live entertainment, primitive encampment, and loads of family friendly fun.
The Historic Sidney Theatre presents Dueling Pianos International. You’ve probably heard about them; maybe even seen them before. Dueling Pianos is a fast, funny, and unforgettable evening entertainment. It takes only one song to have the party goers shouting out requests, singing along to their favorites, bantering with performers, and having the time of their lives. After the show, be sure to stop in for a bite to eat and maybe something cold to drink at one of downtown Sidney’s fun bars, restaurants, and bistros.
Here’s something unique. Have you ever met an alpaca? You can in Sidney. Spend the day with the Paulus family as they host Alpaca Farm Day at Count Your Blessings Alpaca Farm. While there you will learn about these inquisitive, unique animals and the luxurious fiber they produce. Offered will be a variety of activities including petting, feeding and leading alpacas, demonstrations, alpaca obstacle course, door prizes, & hayrides. Food and refreshments will be on hand along with live music by Timmy G. & Co. Alpaca products and other farm-related items will be on display and available for sale.
