History comes alive as local residents portray Wood Countians who exemplify leisure time in Wood County during the 1920s-1930s. 2018 honorees were chosen because of the Wood County Historical Museum’s exhibit "The Return to Normalcy: A Life of Leisure in Wood County."

This event is free and open to the public.

Parking is available in the cemetery, as well as on the adjacent BGSU campus. We recommed entering the cemetery from Poe Road, turn south on Willard, right on Merry, then left to enter the cemetery [ BGSU Map ]

The Wood County Sheriff’s Department will provide free rides up to the mound where the program will be held. Chairs are available, although those attending are encouraged to bring a lawn chair.
