HEBRON — The biggest event of the summer is coming


Aug. 13-15 to National Trail Raceway with the 30th annual

This event attracts 50,000 people from across the country and
around the world as they journey here to see classic Chrysler cars
cruise, drag race, show as well as find new, used and reproduced
parts to restore the older vehicles.
“It is our largest event,” said Mike Fornataro, sales and marketing
manager at NTR. “It’s pretty epic. It’s the largest single-make event
in the world.”
This year’s theme is 30th High School Reunion, said Jim Bielenda,
president of Mopar Nationals. New for this year, the traditional
Mopar cruise on Saturday night from 30th Street in Heath up Ohio
79 now will expand and travel farther to West Main Street and then
on to the Licking County Courthouse Square in downtown Newark.
The new 3.5-mile route will take the old Chrysler muscle cars
cruising into Newark’s new Music and Wings Festival, which will Matthew Berry/file photo
feature Gary Lewis and the Playboys performing. A car leaves the ground and the line as races begin during the Mopar
Nationals at National Trail Raceway in Hebron.
“It’s kinda like a Woodstock thing. It means three days of no
sleep,” Bielenda said. “That will allow the cruise distance to be
longer, so hopefully it will not be so congested.”

CATHARINE HADLEY | CentralOhio.com

SANDUSKY — Since May 15, visitors to Cedar Point have


been able to “Shoot the Rapids” on the amusement park’s
newest ride.
The new water river ride covers nearly 2.5 acres along the
Frontier Trail part of the park. At 85 feet, the first hill is one of the
tallest water ride hills in the world. The second hill is nearly 50
feet, and features a 45-degree plunge.
The ride lasts about three minutes, with a capacity of about
1,200 riders per hour.
It was built in an undeveloped, wooded area near the Millennium
Force roller coaster and the Paddlewheel Excursions boat ride.
The Demon Drop, which was located near the front entrance
of the park, has been dismantled and taken to another Cedar Fair
park in Pennsylvania.

BRATWURST FESTIVAL
AMANDA ROLIK | CentralOhio.com Correspondent

BUCYRUS — This year’s Bratwurst Festival in Bucyrus aims to


please those who want to experience something different than the
average fair.
The festival, in its 43rd year, will be downtown in the city known
as the country’s Bratwurst Capital. The fun will kick off Aug. 19 and
continue through Aug. 21.
Festival director Larry West said the event’s appeal is its different
environment. It isn’t your typical fair, he said, but rather, a traditional
street festival.
In addition to giving people a taste of grilled bratwurst, the festival
will have a variety of food vendors and dozens of things to do and
see. The festival will feature local entertainment throughout the
weekend on two separate stages.
The event will have rides, games, beer gardens, a craft show, an art
show, a variety of eating contests (with, of course, a bratwurst eating
contest) and even a monkey grinder.
The festival also will feature three different parades, one each
