HUBBARD, Ohio (WKBN) – Hubbard’s fourth annual Shop Small event featured more than 70 businesses this year.
It’s called Shop Hubbard Spring Fling Event.
Festivities began at 10 a.m. Saturday. Most shops were open at that time, and many had promotions, deals and giveaways.
Events were happening all over the city. Bands played live music at Tylee Park, and classic car enthusiasts showed off their prized possessions at the Classic Car Show at Rhonda’s Emerald Diner.
After the festivities quieted down in the early evening, patrons could stick around and have a local glass of wine.
“My husband is our vintner and the owner with myself. We make all of our wines. We have mead, which is honey if you’ve never had it before. It’s totally different. We’re one of the only places in the area that makes it. We also do hard ciders. We have sparkling wine on tap. Pretty soon, we’re going to be brewing beer,” said Dani Wilson, owner of Woodland Cellars.
First News is told this shop local event is a huge day for local business. Coordinators say, for some business, it can be their busiest day of the year.
