Letter to the Editor:

We are the Festival with a Focus and we want to thank all our patrons for embracing the philosophy of One Family ~ One Community.  Everyone coming together [August 7 and 8, 2009] for a great cause is very much appreciation by our organization, Perrysburg Heights Community Association (PHCA).

We want to share with everyone a change in a better layout for the festival this year.  We will no longer have a restricted beer gardens fence!  The grounds will all be open once you enter the festival to allow everyone free access to all the vendors and an easier access in an out of our main tent!

The Ohio’s South of the Border Festival is a family environment with dancing for all ages, games, and this year Inflatables by Air Extreme, which will replace the rides formally displayed at our event.  We wanted to provide a more interactive atmosphere for the whole family!

We also will be adding lighting to our On-Site Parking for safety and security. On-site parking is $5 per car.  There will be other residents engaged in soliciting festival goers to pay for parking on their properties, none of those proceeds benefit the PHCA.

All proceeds from Admission, Pepsi, Beer, 50/50 Raffles and Parking benefit the Center.  This year PHCA will be donating all proceeds earned from the Games area to our dance troupe:  Ballet Folklorico Imagenes Mexicanas.

Thanks again for your support!

Y Nos Vemos @ the Border,
Anita Serda
