Doug at Mercer Bicentennial Saturday

Written by Doug Oster on .

I'll be on the town square in Mercer on Saturday July 12, 2014 from 12 noon until 2 p.m. as part of the community's bicentennial celebration.

I'll be answering garden questions, talking gardening, giving things away and signing books too.

I spent a lot of time in Mercer when I worked for the Youngstown Vindicator, I'm looking forward to seeing all my old friends.

The day is packed with great festivities.

On Saturday enjoy historical tours, artisans, quilt show, Civil War encampment, food, farmers’ market.

Also on Saturday, take your family to the Old-Fashioned Day in Brandy Springs Park, south of Mercer. From  from noon until the Fireworks at 9:30pm.

There will be balloon animals, pizza and ice cream eating contests, car cruise-in at 4pm, entertainment, crafts, food, games and more.

There's more information here.
