Vermilion Festival of the Fish in Vermilion, Ohio:  This festive event features a lighted boat parade on the river and a “Crazy Craft” boat race. Pull up a lawn chair and make a day of it riverside and take in the sun and “crazy crafts.” And if you get hungry, treat yourself to a Walleye or Perch sandwich. Now, doesn’t that sound yummy? Oh, and there’s plenty of activities, entertainment and crafts too such as sandcastle building contests and pageants. This is a fun Father’s Day weekend event featuring a fishing contest, games, vendors, and Lake Erie perch. An outdoor marketplace with unique items for sale is also available.
