100 Days of Summer: Day 20-Time to get Medieval

Last cheat and then back to highlighting the fishing, hiking, camping, kayaking, hunting, climbing and other outdoor recreational opportunities in Northeast Ohio.

If you don’t want to get to a lake this spectacular weekend, if the Cycle race and Summer Festival of the Arts ain’t your thing, then maybe a little trip up 534 to Geneva on the Lake is what you’re looking for.  A Little wine, a little ice cream and a huge honkin’ smoked turkey leg to wave at the wenches might just be the ticket at the Great Lakes Medieval Faire.

And if Not?:

Taken Directly from the Mahoning River Consortium Newsletter and Website:

Special June Event: “31-mile Riverside Picnic Party”
When: June 12, 2010 (sunup to sundown).
Where: All along the Mahoning River!
What: The idea of this event is to get as many families, groups, and individuals of the Mahoning Valley as possible to picnic somewhere, anywhere, along the river on this day. The goal of the MRC’s is to get folks to see the beauty of the river, so they will want that beauty embellished by the cleaning of pollutants from the river bed. We would like canoers, kayakers and motor boaters to cruise the river that day; and hikers and runners to cruise the shoreline. We picked June 12 because that is the second ‘National Get Outdoors Day.’
