Ohio Weekend Getaways include Sugarcreek Swiss Festival
This Ohio festival has been going on for over 50 years and should be included in your Ohio weekend getaways. It includes everything from parades, to musical entertainment, to wine & cheese sample station, to special games and great food. The special games include Steintossen, which is a stone throwing contest that dates back to the 13th century. The stone weighs about 138 pounds so this is not for lightweights. There is also a Yodeling Contest and Swiss Costume Contest on Saturday. The Sugarcreek Swiss Festival is an annual tradition for many families. Come check it out and maybe you will have a new annual tradition. Sugarcreek is just a stone's throw from the heart of Amish Country, Ohio. Save time to visit the Amish bakeries, candle makers, basket makers, Amish furniture builders, and more.
