On both days, local businesses and non-profit organizations with displays in the Merchants Building will offer activities for children. The Hancock Historical Museum will display information about Findlay’s history and attendees can don “old-fashioned” attire and have their photo taken for purchase. Information on upcoming Bicentennial events will be presented and Bicentennial attire and souvenirs will be available for purchase.


Visitors are encouraged to bring an item to include in the Bicentennial Time Capsule to be buried later this year and opened in 2062. The cost to include items in the time capsule are: $1.00 for children and $5.00 for adults; companies and organizations can place items for $25.00.


Attendees will be treated to a variety of food options including hickory smoked pork and beef, wings, ribs, gyros, tenderloin sandwiches, hot dogs, corn dogs, pizza, Mexican and Asian fare, fries, funnel cakes, elephant ears, cinnamon roasted nuts, kettle corn, popcorn, shaved ice, cotton candy, candy apples, mini melts, root beer, lemonade, and soft drinks.
