The annual Wauseon Homecoming Festival kicks off this Thursday with three full days of food and fun in Downtown Wauseon.
Those attending will be able to buy raffle tickets for a big prize drawing Saturday. One grand prize winner will walk off with a $10,000 cash prize. The second-place winner will receive a custom golf cart, and the third-place winner will take home a 46-inch flat screen television.
Tickets are one for $5, three for $10, or seven for $20. Special kids prizes will also be given away.
Pork chop sandwiches and brats will be served on the courthouse lawn. There’ll be rides and games for the kids and a parade too.
On Friday, there will be a battle of the bands and a teen dance.
Wauseon Homecoming has been a big event since 1934. All proceeds benefit the local parks and recreation department.
