Father’s Day weekend is a great time to get away and celebrate with family. Downtown Logan comes alive with the celebration of an ancient instrument familiar to the hills of Ohio. Home of the Columbus Washboard Company, the only remaining washboard manufacturing company in the US, this instrument was created by people when money was tight in rural America. Listen to some eclectic music and have some fun at this family-friendly festival.
