This coming Sunday, August 8th, is the second Sunday in August. Stricker's Grove will be open to the public. Definetly check it out if you're in the area.
On another note, the VERY large and fun Ohio State Fair starts also, which is a must.
Even better news is that it's not suppose to rain this weekend in Ohio ;)
Wanna go for a Ride?
Aurora University Golf
It is certainly worth the price! Tornado is really good little ride, smooth, fun and with a couple of surprise moments. They have a small but interesting collection of flat rides including a rare crazy dazy, tip top, flying scooter, and an antique carousel.
The place usually opens in the early afternoon. The rides will run for a few hours then they shut everything down for an hour to force people to play games and eat, then they open the rides up again and run them until 9pm or so. kinda weird.
They will also be open to the public on saturday october 2nd, admission is again $ 8
POP. The times are changed for that day. They will be 1-4 & 5-8pm.

The Tornado is a pretty sweet ride. The best reason to go IMO. Also had one of the best Cheeseburgers I ever had at a park before!
You can check out my pics from the 4th that feature every ride they have there except for the train. The train was not running that day.
If you go, I will be the dude with the Cincinnati Reds jersey on riding Tornado over and over again! Say hello!
Oh by the way, I just had to throw in this pic of a DOG riding the Tornado that I found on the web! I am sure most of you have seen this pic....just makes me laugh everytime I see it!

I'm happy to report a complete remodel of the bathrooms. Beautifully done tilework and brand new waterless urinals!
There's also a new games building.
