Vermilion Woollybear Festival in Vermilion, Ohio:  Everyone knows about Ground Hog Day but a fuzzy little critter in Vermilion will forecast how severe of a winter Ohio can expect before it even starts – or so they say. The Woollybear is a fuzzy caterpillar. It is said that if the black band on the critters brown back is wide, get ready for lots of white stuff to fall from the sky. Well, this festival pays tribute to the Woollybear with its annual weather forecast, parade, wooly bear races and many contests, arts and crafts and additional entertainment for the whole family.
