The Downtown Wauseon Association and the Fulton County Historical Society kicks off the holiday season with the annual parade on Saturday, November 29. The parade starts at the county courthouse at 7:00pm and ends with free refreshments at the Wauseon Depot. Historical Society President, Carl Buehrer will be the 2014 Grand Marshall and Muddy Mud Hen will also be part of the parade, thanks to the local 5/3 Bank. Santa and Mrs. Claus will exit their parade float and be in attendance, and horse drawn surrey rides will be available for a minimal fee after the parade.
The Wauseon Downtown Association is looking for businesses, churches, community organizations and even individuals, who would like to participate. There are no entry fees. To register, please email:
email@example.com or mail to P.O. Box 3, Wauseon, OH 43567.
Local author, Bob Krumm will be on hand at the depot to sign his newly released book “Wauseon”. Highlights from the book include images of Wauseon’s first dirt streets, the first Homecoming in 1934, and industries like “the flashlight factory” and the Malleable Iron Works plant. “Wauseon” is available at the Fulton County museum, fultoncountyhs.org or through Arcadia Publishing at (888)-313-2665 or online. A portion of the proceeds from each book will benefit the new Museum & Welcome Center of Fulton County, OH.
