Summer, 2021 is off to a great start in Sylvania! After cancelling most events in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Sylvania is back on track for a full schedule of summer events this year. And Sylvania has so much to offer this summer!
First and foremost, will be our Independence Day Celebration the evening of Saturday, July 3rd at Centennial Terrace. Starting at 7:00 p.m. there will be entertainment, live music and food. And once it gets dark, we will have one of the biggest and best fireworks display in Northwest Ohio. Thousands of people will be on hand to enjoy them.
Each year, Sylvania City Council President Mark Frye helps organize a spectacular fireworks show, and he promises this year will be no exception. The fireworks can also be viewed very well from Pacesetter Park. Our thanks to Sylvania Township for helping to sponsor these fireworks along with the City of Sylvania.
Thank you also to the many volunteers and sponsors for this very special event, and also to SAJRD for their hard work and planning. Proceeds from this event go towards the continuing improvements and operation of Centennial Terrace, a wonderful asset for the entire community.
Other major activities planned this summer in Sylvania are the Marathon LPGA Golf Tournament held at Highland Meadows Golf Club during the week of July 5th. The Sylvania Pizza Palooza is scheduled for Friday, July 30th and Saturday, July 31st at Centennial Terrace.
There are summer First Friday Art Walks in downtown Sylvania on July 2nd and August 6th. Downtown Sylvania now has a larger DORA, or Designated Outdoor Refreshment Area, every night. There are Farmers Markets every Tuesday from 4:00-7:00 p.m. in the St. Joseph’s/Lathrop House parking lot on Main Street until October.
The Local Fest downtown and Riding Late in County 48 will both take place on Saturday, August 28th. There are concerts scheduled throughout the summer at Centennial Terrace. The Sylvania Triathlon/Duathlon is Sunday August 1st. The Summer Disco Party is June 25th at Centennial Terrace. Centennial Terrace and Plummer Pool are open every day for swimming.
