It’s Irish Festival Weekend, Marysville, which means our neighbors in Dublin will be going all out. There will be live Irish music, whiskey tastings and even a 5K. But after a whirlwind week at the fair, you might feel like staying close to home this weekend. If so, we’ve got you covered! Here are 5 things to do in Marysville and Union County this weekend.
All Weekend Long
Is it apple picking time already? Scope out the selection of Williams Pride apples this weekend at CherryHawk Farm, just off Springdale Road. For $10 you can take home as many apples as you can carry from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
You’ve probably heard the buzz about this moving and important exhibit. Master Ohio craftsman James Mellick created these beautiful wooden dog sculptures to show the sacrifice of our nation’s wounded veterans. The exhibit will travel to D.C. soon, but is housed in a storefront in uptown Marysville for the duration of the weekend. It’s definitely something you won’t want to miss.

Head out to the pool this Saturday night with your blankets and lawn chairs for Finding Dory! The movie starts at dusk. Sponsored by the Marysville Public Library, Living Hope Church and Richwood Bank.
