Perrysburg is a small little town in Northwest Ohio. One of the annual traditions around here is the end of summer celebration called Harrison Rally Day. The festival gets its name from a political rally held in 1840 at the site of Fort Meigs where 40,000 people gathered to hear presidential candidate William Henry Harrison on his whistle stop tour.
I’ve lived here for most of my life and every year we make our way down to historic downtown Perrysburg where more than 10,000 people gather for a parade, live music, good food and a celebration of the arts. I call days like these my “Doc Hollywood moments.”
For those of you that remember that Michael J. Fox movie, you may recall that scene where he’s watching the parade go by, everything goes into slow motion and he’s just taking it all in. It’s that nostalgic feeling of getting away from all the craziness of our day to day lives and just enjoying the moment.
Well enough nostalgia, here are a few pics from my Doc Hollywood moment of 2010.
