Sept. 23 - Root Beer & Yesteryear, 1:00-4:00 p.m.

Join friends old and new at the Oberlin Heritage Center on Saturday, September 23 from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. for this family-friendly (and FREE!) event featuring live music performances, historic portrayals, old-fashioned games, exhibits and best of all -- root beer floats for everyone! Why root beer? Throughout most of its history Oberlin was a "dry" town, meaning you couldn't buy alcohol within city limits. Times have changed but a fondness for this summer treat hasn’t. The floats are generously provided by Oberlin IGA, while free popcorn is made possible by the Oberlin Athletic Boosters Club and Bethany Hobbs. Full Story
