Duct Tape Time in Avon

Admit it: Duct tape plays a central roll in your day-to-day life, mending everything from your sneakers to that cracked laptop case. So why not pay homage to the ubiquitous binder during this weekend's Eighth Annual Avon Heritage Duct Tape Festival? Like most summer shindigs, this one features rides, food, games, parades, floats, a beer tent (there is always a beer tent!) and other entertainment. The difference is that here, everything — except possibly the beer — is centered around Ohio-made, Duck Tape-brand duct tape. The festival opens today at 4 p.m., and the first 500 attendees get a free roll of the sticky stuff. Disney Radio will be hanging around the main stage at 5:30 p.m., and '80s cover band the Breakfast Club plays at 8:30 p.m. The fun continues through Sunday; admission and parking are free. It all happens at Veterans Memorial Park, 3701 Veterans Memorial Parkway in Avon. For more information, visit ducttapefestival.com. — Ryan Young
