Marigold Festival promises fun


HUBER HEIGHTS — The Huber Heights Marigold Festival will once again bring thousands of people to Eichelberger Ampitheater on Saturday, Sept. 9.

The festival, in its fifth year since being reinstated in 2013, has grown every year since it was brought back. The festival runs from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and is hosted by the Huber Heights Arts & Beautification Commission.

The festival will feature many vendors this year, according to Margaret Muhl, staff liaison to the Commission. There are a variety of arts and crafts booths as well as food booths and food trucks. Muhl said the food trucks were among the popular vendors last year. There will also be a Kidz Zone which includes carnival games and bounce houses.

Music and entertainment will be provided including performances by the winners of the “Huber’s Got Talent” competition. Three local bands will performa as well as dance troupes.

One new feature will include the Creative Impressions Community Art Show which was rescheduled from earlier this year. Artists are invited to set up work at the festival and can reserve space by contacting Muhl at 233-1423.
